The Double Shadow by Sally Gardner

I recently read the proof copy for Sally Gardner's new book for young adults, The Double Shadow and, I have to say, it was fantastic! Sally Gardner has become one of my favourite authors, regardless of the age group she's writing for. I, Coriander was absolute magic, and quite a few schools in the area use it as a class novel. The Red Necklace, which is a younger teen book that takes place during the French Revolution paints a very powerful picture, not simply of the time, but also of the mindset of the people in the context of their surroundings. With this new book, Gardner offers us a gripping psychological/family portrait combined with a science-fiction thriller that is outstanding. Coming in November, Orion have just released the trailer.
