Elle McNicoll is a brilliant and welcome new voice in children's fiction. A Kind of Spark tells the story of 11-year-old Addie, who has autism. We join Addie as she campaigns for a memorial to the women persecuted in the Scottish witch trials, recognising similarities in the way she is received by her hometown. We challenge you not to fall in love with this book, and with the fearless Addie!
Here Elle has collected some of her own recommendations for 8-12 yr old readers.
