From Kiran Millwood Hargrave, The Dance Tree is a story of family secrets and forbidden love, set in an era of superstition and extraordinary change, and inspired by the factual events of a doomed summer. The Night Ship from Jess Kidd is an imaginative historical epic of shipwreck, mutiny, fate and friendship, which is based on the true story of one of the worst disasters in maritime history.
