Description

One stormy summer night, Olive and her best friend, Rose, begin to lose things. It starts with simple items like hair clips and jewellery, but soon it's clear that Rose has lost something bigger; something she won't talk about.

Then Olive meets three wild, mysterious strangers: Ivy, Hazel and Rowan. Like Rose, they're mourning losses - and holding tight to secrets.

When they discover the ancient spellbook, full of hand-inked charms to conjure back lost things, they realise it might be their chance to set everything right. Unless it's leading them towards secrets that were never meant to be found . . .

Review quote

Spellbook is reminiscent of a medieval tapestry in its colour, complexity, and stylistic texture . . . [it is] sure to please teens who enjoyed Fowley-Doyle's debut novel, The Accident Season. * VOYA * Fowley-Doyle's lush, atmospheric storytelling contrasts brilliantly with her characters' teenage normalcy * Kirkus * Lush and deliciously twisty . . . Fowley-Doyle is herself a literary spell caster, conjuring up a suspenseful and sensual ambience in the forest on the edges of town and in the remains of bonfire revelry . . . This smart and sexy page-turner that readers will want to devour and share with their friends is a real find * School Library Journal * This complex, ambitious, magical novel is gripping and as the plot unfolds, it is unflinching . . . but beneath the darkness shines a life-affirming message of love and redemption * Daily Mail *
