Snow Globe by Amy Wilson



Snowglobe is the beautifully spellbinding, stand-alone novel from Amy Wilson, the critically acclaimed and Carnegie-nominated author of A Girl Called Owl and A Far Away Magic

Amy’s ability to combine modern-day reality with magic to create a believable and exciting story is unique.  The scale of her imagination is second to none and this third book, with such a strong voice and so simple in its concept yet so rich, demonstrates this perfectly.  Amy shows a confident, quiet certainty in the world she has created here and combined with vivid characters, a beautiful but flawed landscape and an exciting plot, her third novel is a book which whisks the reader away on a tide of adventure.  


Snowglobe tells the story of daydreamer Clementine who has been trying to avoid her magic for a while but it has been getting stronger, and harder to ignore.  Whilst at school, she loses control of it and realises she can escape it no longer.  When she is drawn to a mysterious house in the middle of town that was never there before, she is pulled in by the powerful sense of a mother she never knew.  Once inside, she finds the place is full of hanging snowglobes, each one shaken, churned up and containing a trapped magician, each one lost in time. 


So Clementine ventures into the snowglobes in an attempt to release all the magicians from their glassy domes.  In the process, she discovers her own powerful connection to the magic of these miniature worlds and, unknowingly, she unleashes a struggle for power that will put, not only her own family, but the future of magic itself in grave danger. 

Snowglobe is suitable for readers age 9+ and is available to buy now from Amazon.com and all good book retailers £6.99.
