by Annelise Gray, hardback £12.99 for 9–13-year-olds (reviewed by Octavia)

I raced through the proof of this amazing debut by Annelise Gray in lockdown. I’ve always loved horse stories and books with historical context, so this was perfect to me. It has some serious girl power and is both compelling and gripping. It is one of the best new books out for 9–13-year-olds. It has the added bonus of being a beautiful looking hardback to treasure.
