Description

For fans of ONWARD and A Monster Calls, this is an unmissable illustrated story about grief and love for young readers 9 and up.

Twelve-year-old Sade has been escaping to an imaginary world ever since her mum passed away – with its candy-floss lilac sky, she goes on endless adventures atop her purple-winged bird, Nix. But soon she discovers that frightening shadow beasts live here too and they are seeping into the real world.

Luckily, when her sister signs her up to an anonymous grief counselling group, Sade finds her anxiety gets better.
But then she’s asked to perform spoken word in the talent show. The beasts won’t let her get on stage: Tiger appears with her long sharp claws, Lion with his piercing blue eyes, and Fox stands on his giant hind legs.

Will Sade find the courage to say what she needs to – can she banish the shadow beasts for good?

A story about a girl dealing with the death of a parent – with the help of a school support group and a colourful world only she can see.
