The Turnaway Girls


Childrens Book Publisher
  • On the strange, stormy island of Blightsend, twelve-year-old Delphernia Undersea has spent her whole life in the cloister of turnaway girls, hidden from sea and sky by a dome of stone and the laws of the island. Outside, the Masters play their music. Inside, the turnaway girls silently make that music into gold. Making shimmer, Mother Nine calls it. But Delphernia can’t make shimmer. She would rather sing than stay silent. When a Master who doesn’t act like a Master comes to the skydoor, it’s a chance for Delphernia to leave the cloister. Outside the stone dome, the sea breathes like a wild beast, the sky watches with stars like eyes, and even the gardens have claws. Outside, secrets fall silent in halls without sound. And outside, Delphernia is caught between the island’s sinister Custodian and its mysterious Childer-Queen.

I thought this book was great and it's all about a girl named Delphernia and her singing life. This is what the blurb says (so when she has the chance to leave the cloister ,she takes it. But the outside world is not how Delphernia imagined - and she soon discovers it will take courage to truly change her fate)👍👍👍👍👍😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎
