The Ice Garden - by Guy Jones
SHORTLISTED for the Awesome Book Awards 2019
Jess is allergic to the sun.
She lives indoors in a world of shadows and hospitals, peeking at the other children in the playground from behind curtains. Her only friend is a boy in a coma, to whom she tells stories.
One night she sneaks out to explore the empty playground she’s longed to visit, where she discovers a beautiful impossibility: a magical garden wrought of ice. But Jess isn’t alone in this fragile, in-between place …
A tale of loneliness, friendship and the healing power of love, set between the real, contemporary world and a world of ice and magic – sure to capture the imaginations of readers.
