The wonderful Summer by Ali Smith… hidden by The Book Fairies!

The Book Fairies defied wet weather all around the UK to bring rays of sunshine to lucky book finders!

Book fairies around the UK are bringing much needed Summer in these rainy days! These rays of sunshine were hidden in sheltered spots on Sunday.

About the book:

The culmination of a hugely ambitious and fast-paced literary project, Summer continues the interplay between the recent past and modern day society that marked out Smith’s preceding works as so resonant and insightful.

The unmissable finale to Ali Smith’s dazzling literary tour de force: the Seasonal quartet concludes in 2020 with Summer.

In the present, Sacha knows the world’s in trouble. Her brother Robert just is trouble. Their mother and father are having trouble. Meanwhile the world’s in meltdown – and the real meltdown hasn’t even started yet. In the past, a lovely summer. A different brother and sister know they’re living on borrowed time.

This is a story about people on the brink of change. They’re family, but they think they’re strangers. So: where does family begin? And what do people who think they’ve got nothing in common have in common?
