I’m thrilled- and a little bit nervous- to share with you the cover for The Girl Who Walked On Air ( due 7 August 2014). The cover for Frost Hollow Hall was pretty special. So many people commented on it, and not just because it sparkled! So, GWWOA did have a hard act to follow. Yet once again, Faber have done me proud. Hope you think so too!
(Blurb from Goodreads)
Abandoned as a baby at Chipchase’s Travelling Circus, Louie dreams of becoming a ‘Showstopper’. Yet Mr Chipchase only ever lets her sell tickets. No Death-Defying Stunts for her. So in secret, Louie practises her act- the tightrope- and dreams of being the Girl Who Walked on Air. All she needs is to be given the chance to shine.
One night a terrible accident occurs. Now the circus needs Louie’s help, and with rival show Wellbeloved’s stealing their crowds, Mr Chipchase needs a Showstopper- fast.
Against his better judgement, he lets Louie perform. She is a sensation and gets an offer from the sinister Mr Wellbeloved himself to perform in America. But nothing is quite as it seems and soon Louie’s bravery is tested not just on the highwire but in confronting her past and the shady characters in the world of the circus . . .
Fans of Frost Hollow Hall will love this epic adventure, where courage takes many different forms.
