I'm pretty sure it's been forever and a day since I've done one of these, but here we go!
This week's teaser comes from David Almond's My Name Is Mina. Having never read Skellig (which I guess is kinda amazeballs) this story has started off very strange to me. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet, but I'm going to stick it out and see where it goes.
Words should wander and meander. They should fly like owls and flicker like bats and slip like cats. They should murmur and scream and dance and sing. ~ pg. 11

And so Mina writes and writes in her journal, and through her stories and poems there grows an opus of her life - her lessons, her loves, her beliefs, her mum, her dad, her thoughts and her dreams.
In this stunningly designed book, David Almond revisits Mina before she has met Michael, before she has met Skellig, in what is a thought-provoking and extraordinary prequel to his best-selling debut novel, Skellig.
From the winner of the Whitbread Children's Book Award the Carnegie Medal and the 2010 Hans Christian Andersen Award comes the extraordinary prequel to the award-winning Skellig.
