About this deal

They're only worry is their mother, Renata, who spends her days shut up in her workhouse manipulating bones into beautiful creations for the Duchessa. Filled with gorgeous imagery of a historical town in Italy, this atmospheric middle grade was such a delight to read this spooky season.

Older villains are a common theme in books where children are the protagonists, but Hargrave does an especially good job of using this to portray the virtue of children's innocence and the corrupting effect of power in adults. Momentami przeżyjecie niezły rollercoaster emocjonalny i taki, że będziesz chciał/ła krzyczeć „Nie idź tam” „Zostaw to” itp. It's a sheltered life, but a wonderful one as Sofia and her brother Ermin have grown up without the worry of smallpox and droughts that have plauged the nearby city of Siena.The convent orphanage is exactly as awful as it sounds; Sister Rosa seems sickeningly sweet, but the children are scared, and they keep disappearing in the night -a mystery that kept me guessing for most of the book. W całej tej drodze Sofia z Ermin spotkają też tych dobrych ludzi, którzy chcą dla nich jak najlepiej. This one follows siblings Sofia and Ermin in a historical Siena, where the Smallpox has taken the lives of so many in their town. Sofia, dziewczyna z kościanego domu" to dziecięco-młodzieżowa przygodówka z fajnym pomysłem na świat, wartką akcją, zagadką oraz motywem pogoni i ucieczki.

I was almost at the end before I knew it and never felt like anything was missing from the adventures.Having read both Kiran Millwood Hargrave’s adult and YA fiction, I actually think that this curious little tale is my favourite although I would have liked to have learnt a little more about the wider world in which the story was set. Jeśli Ty, lub jakiś młodszy czytelnik z twojego otoczenia uwielbiacie łamigłówki, sekretne przejścia, domowe wrony i najgorszych złoczyńców, to myślę że spokojnie możesz postawić na tę pozycję.
