The Lovereading4Kids comment
A hugely imaginative and inventive fantasy, Gullstruck Island is the wonderful creation of a whole new world in which some of the strangest things happen. Arilou is a Lost, a special child who has the ability to mind-fly with the winds. It’s a valuable but dangerous asset and Arilou hides a dangerous secret. Can she and her sister keep the secret and also keep themselves safe from their trackers on the island where volcanoes quarrel?
If you enjoyed this then why not read Hardinge's debut novel Fly By Night.
Gullstruck Island by Frances Hardinge
On Gullstruck Island the volcanoes quarrel, beetles sing danger and occasionally a Lost is born. In the village of the Hollow Beasts live two sisters. Arilou is a Lost - a child with the power to depart her body and mind-fly with the winds - and Hathin is her helper. They hide a dangerous secret. Until sinister events threaten to uncover it.
