Melvin Burgess signing The Lost Witch
MELVIN BURGESS will be signing THE LOST WITCH at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Saturday 28th July from 4 – 5pm
A powerful, thrilling fantasy for young adults about magic, myth and following your instincts.
Bea has started to hear and see things that no one else can – creatures, voices, visions. Then strangers visit Bea and tell her she is different: she has the rare powers of a witch. They warn her she is being hunted. Her parents think she is hallucinating and needs help. All Bea wants to do is get on with her life, and to get closer to Lars, the mysterious young man she has met at the skate park.
But her life is in danger, and she must break free. The question is – whom can she trust?
