About this product
- DescriptionRead this thought-provoking, critically acclaimed vel from Frances Hardinge, winner of the Costa Book of the Year and Costa Children's Book Awards for <i>The Lie Tree</i>. When Triss wakes up after an accident, she kws something is very wrong. She is insatiably hungry, her sister seems scared of her, and her parents whisper behind closed doors. She looks through her diary to try to remember, but the pages have been ripped out. Soon Triss discovers that what happened to her is more strange and terrible than she could ever have imagined, and that she is quite literally t herself. In a quest to find the truth she must travel into the terrifying underbelly of the city to meet a twisted architect who has dark designs on her family--before it's too late . . . Set in England after World War I, this is a brilliantly creepy but ultimately loving story of the relationship between two sisters who have to band together against a world where thing is as it seems.
