The Miseducation of Evie Epworth by Matson Taylor

Up until now, 16-year-old Evie Epworth’s life has been nothing special: a patchwork of school, Guides, cows, lost mother and village fetes. She dreams of a life far away from rural east Yorkshire, but standing in her way is Christine, Evie’s soon-to-be stepmother, a manipulative and money-grubbing schemer. This is a perfectly pitched coming-of-age fairytale about love, friendship and following your dreams.

Each “spell” conjures an animal, bird, tree or flower- from barn Owl to Red Fox, Grey Seal to Silver Birch, Jay to Jackdaw- with which we share our lives and landscapes.
