“Fairy tales breathe truth into the world. They are more real even than you and me.”
The Book Fairies have been spending today sharing copies of The Midnighters by Hana Tooke! We are excited to get this beautiful story out there in the hands of lucky finders. We found many great clocktowers at which to leave the copies…
About the book:
Find the courage to be extraordinary…
Ema Vašková has always felt different. In a family of famous scientists, there’s not much room for superstition or omens – but they seem to follow Ema wherever she goes. It doesn’t help that she appears to predict events before they happen, and has a peculiar fear of shadows…
When Ema is sent to stay with her eccentric uncle in Prague, she fears she’ll lose the chance to ever fit in. But then she meets Silvie – a girl who finally sees Ema for the extraordinary person that she is. Soon the girls are meeting for secret midnight adventures, and facing Ema’s fears together.
But then disaster strikes. Silvie goes missing – and it’s up to Ema to find her. Now she must gather the courage to hunt the city, find her friend, and uncover the secrets of the one clue Silvie left as to where she might be – inside the mysterious Midnight Guild…
We love nothing more than to hear from those lucky people who find the books we leave behind… Here are some of our favourites from today!
