A Skinful of Shadows is about a girl called Makepeace who is haunted by dreams of ghosts, although none of them are ever real. But her mother sends her to a graveyard where she really suffers. One day she sees a mysterious man with white hair. It's a very scary book. In fact, it's making me shiver just writing this. The book goes into breathtaking detail in the scary bits. In this book, when you die, you don't actually die, you become a spirit looking for someone. Someone with space inside them. This book may be creepy, but it's a brilliant book. I loved it, even though it did scare me. I would recommend it for confident, older readers and people who like to be scared!
Our Reading Den is a place for you and your child to discover and share books, find new authors and explore stories. Here is a library of books created by a community of parents and children where you can browse books that others have enjoyed and recommended.
Once your child has discovered a new book we invite them to create their own online Reading Den and fill a bookshelf of their own. You and your child can review the books they have enjoyed and help others choose their next read.
