    Frances Hardinge weaves another darkly extraordinary tale in A Skinful of Shadows, her follow-up to the Costa Award-winning novel The Lie Tree.

    'Hardinge is an unusual talent who deserves to be read by children and adults alike' - Guardian

    This is the story of a bear-hearted girl . . .

    Sometimes, when a person dies, their spirit goes looking for somewhere to hide.
    Some people have space within them, perfect for hiding.

    Twelve-year-old Makepeace has learned to defend herself from the ghosts which try to possess her in the night, desperate for refuge, but one day a dreadful event causes her to drop her guard.

    And now there's a spirit inside her.

    The spirit is wild, brutish and strong, and it may be her only defence when she is sent to live with her father's rich and powerful ancestors. There is talk of civil war, and they need people like her to protect their dark and terrible family secret.

    But as she plans her escape and heads out into a country torn apart by war, Makepeace must decide which is worse: possession - or death.
