Frances Hardinge - Author

About the Author

Frances Hardinge spent a large part of her childhood in a huge old house that inspired her to write strange stories from an early age. She read English at Oxford University, then got a job at a software company. However, a few years later a persistent friend finally managed to bully Frances into sending a few chapters of Fly By Night, her first children's novel, to a publisher. Macmillan made her an immediate offer. The book went on to publish to huge critical acclaim and win the Branford Boase First Novel Award. She has since written many highly acclaimed children's novels including, Fly By Night's sequel, Twilight Robbery, as well as the Carnegie shortlisted Cuckoo Song and the Costa Book of the Year winner, The Lie Tree.

Josh, Ryan und Chelle sind ein unzertrennliches Trio. Jeder von ihnen hat seine Probleme, und gemeinsam unternehmen sie immer etwas Besonderes. Als sie einmal Munzen aus einem Wunschbrunnen klauen, weil ihnen das Busgeld fur die Ruckfahrt fehlt, fangt eine unheimliche Geschichte an, deren Faden sie selbst uberhaupt nicht mehr in der Hand haben. Sie bemerken seltsame Veranderungen an sich selbst und tauchen in fremde Leben ein. In einer feinen Mischung aus Realismus und Fantastik erzhlt Frances Hardinge eine absolut ungewhnliche Geschichte mit Spannung und Tiefe.

the most enjoyable children's book of the year so far Sunday Times This unusual and highly imaginative fantasy from Frances Hardinge is spellbinding: sophisticated, multi-layered and elegantly written. Booktrust Weird and wonderful. Evening Standard It would be hard to imagine any book by Frances Hardinge being anything but excellent. Bookbag I loved this book! ... Face Like Glass: it's a sweet little onion of a story - layer on layer of plot, and characters, and realisations British Fantasy Society In the underground city of Caverna the world's most skilled craftsmen toil in the darkness to create delicacies beyond compare - wines that can remove memories, cheeses that can make you hallucinate and perfumes that convince you to trust the wearer, even as they slit your throat. The people of Caverna are more ordinary, but for one thing: their faces are as blank as untouched snow. Expressions must be learned, and only the famous Facesmiths can teach a person to show (or fake) joy, despair or fear - at a price. Into this dark and distrustful world comes Neverfell, a little girl with no memory of her past and a face so terrifying to those around her that she must wear a mask at all times. For Neverfell's emotions are as obvious on her face as those of the most skilled Facesmiths, though entirely genuine. And that makes her very dangerous indeed . . .
