The Land of Forgotten Girls

£6.99

The Land of Forgotten Girls‘ is a creation Sol has made for Ming so that she will not be so frightened. There is a lot to be frightened about in their world. Pinched noses, ice water, the Beast dog in the junkyard are all frightening. Ming believes that Auntie Jove will rescue them. Sol knows better. She understands that the one-bedroomed apartment with their stepmother is their lot. Ice lollies from Tippets make the world a better place. Treasure could help, and she knows where’s there’s treasure to be had. There’s treasure meanwhile in the stories she weaves in ‘The Land of Forgotten Girls’.

This is a magnificent, heart-wrenching, sole- pounding novel. I am delighted to have discovered the works of Erin Entrada Kelly and proud to present the first, ‘The Land of Forgotten Girls‘ to our older Bookwagon readers.
