A page-turning mystery novel in verse for readers aged 8+

Young readers will be gripped by this story about identity, friendship and learning to use your voice, with accessible text and beautiful illustrations throughout.

We love the sound of this super accessible, highly illustrated novel in verse with themes of friendship, inclusivity and amplifying your voice, all wrapped up in an intriguing mystery. Ideal for anyone who enjoyed Matt Goodfellow's The Final Year.


When twelve-year-old Estie is expelled from school, she's sent to stay with her aunt in Scotland over the summer. Even though nobody, not even her mum, asked to hear her side of the story.

Estie's determined to keep her barriers up and stick to herself until the holidays are over. But when she comes across an intricately folded paper castle with a secret message written inside - a message from someone desperate to tell their own unbelieved story - a chord is struck, and Estie can't help but follow the clues to the next piece of artwork. Who are these messages from? And what will their secret reveal about the town?

In helping to uncover the anonymous artist's truth, Estie just might find the words to tell her own. . .

Nadine Aisha Jassat is an award-winning writer who lives in Scotland, and grew up in the North of England with a Yorkshire mum and a Zimbabwean dad. She is of mixed heritage; a heritage which can only be told in stories.
