"Listen, my children. Have you heard of the Lost Girls? They go into the woods and never come back ..." Mist is Kathryn James' first novel. She currently works as a filmmaker documenting the lives of gypsies living in the UK, and the novel draws on and is influenced by her work with this community.

Synopsis

Mist by Kathryn James

Midnight: a mist-haunted wood with a bad reputation. A sweet sixteen party, and thirteen-year-old Nell is trying to keep her sister, spoilt birthday-girl Gwen, out of trouble. No chance. Trouble finds Gwen and drags her through the mist. Only Nell guesses who's behind the kidnap - the boy she hoped was her friend, the gorgeous but mysterious Evan River. Evan is no ordinary boy - he has a secret which will lead Nell to question everything she has always learned from her grandmother's stories. Evan lives on the fringes of Nell's world, rarely glimpsed, misunderstood and feared, but a long-simmering showdown between the two worlds is looming ...

Reviews

"Overall this is a high recommendation just on the strength of Nell herself as an excellent main character and I look forward to reading more from this talented author." Robert James, The Bookbag.co.uk
