Sarah Crossan’s much anticipated new novel Toffee made a splash in London and Cornwall with the book fairies, as we hid copies in areas of relevance to the plot.
Our official Cornish book fairy was tasked with the job of finding picturesque places to leave copies of Toffee. Calling in some book fairy helpers, as well as a travelling book fairy from over in Devon, they covered some amazing landscape – including the great St Michael’s Mount!
To generate a bit of extra buzz for the launch of this book, we hid several copies of Sarah Crossan’s Toffee around the capital, too. Did you find one?
About the book:
I am not who I say I am. Marla isn’t who she thinks she is. I am a girl trying to forget. Marla is a woman trying to remember. Allison has run away from home and with nowhere to live finds herself hiding out in the shed of what she thinks is an abandoned house.
But the house isn’t empty. An elderly woman named Marla, with dementia, lives there – and she mistakes Allison for an old friend from her past called Toffee. Allison is used to hiding who she really is, and trying to be what other people want her to be. And so, Toffee is who she becomes. After all, it means she has a place to stay. There are worse places she could be. But as their bond grows, and Allison discovers how much Marla needs a real friend, she begins to ask herself -where is home?
What is a family? And most importantly, who am I, really?
