Author: Amy Wilson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/10/2020

A glittering story of frost and friendship, with writing full of magic and heart, A Girl Called Owl is Amy Wilson's critically-acclaimed debut about family and the beauty of the natural world. It's bad enough having a mum dippy enough to name you Owl, but when you've got a dad you've never met, a best friend who needs you more than ever, and a new boy at school giving you weird looks, there's not a lot of room for much else. So when Owl starts seeing strange frost patterns on her skin, she's tempted to just burrow down under the duvet and forget all about it. Could her strange new powers be linked to her mysterious father? And what will happen when she enters the magical world of winter for the first time? Continue Owl's story with the companion volume, Owl and the Lost Boy. 'A story of wild winds and bitter frosts with the warmth of friendship at its heart.' - Abi Elphinstone, author of Sky Song.
