Book Description

9 Jun 2011

The sparkling new novel from the author of SHINE and GLITTER.

“We talk about everything, Dad and me.
About all the mysteries inside of us. About all our wonderings of the world.
But tomorrow my dad goes to war. Then what will I do?”

Jemima’s dad’s in the Army and he’s off to Afghanistan again for six whole months.
Her mum’s about to have another baby and hasn’t got the energy to worry about anything else.
Gran is staying to help out, but her head is filled with her own wartime memories.
So while Mima is sending Dad millions of guardian angels every night to keep him safe, who is looking out for her?

The third novel from Kate Maryon – a sparkling new voice for tween girls.

Product Description


Praise for ‘Invisible Girl’:
“Kate Maryon’s characters stay with you long after the book is finished.” Jenny Valentine

Praise for A Million Angels
Easy to read and beautifully observed…
Maryon has a vivid turn of phrase and a gift for expressing complicated emotions…

Praise for Shine:
“[Kate Maryon] understands a child's deepest feelings, including the negative ones, and she allows Tiff to run through the gamut of them as she slowly works her way through feelings of abandonment, loneliness, fear and anger, until eventually happiness and love can resurface. Readers will recognise all her thoughts. It's an uplifting story which begins with a huge disaster and ends with a new start for everyone. It will reassure and comfort its readers and it exactly inhabits their emotional landscape… I think tween girls are going to love it.” [Four stars] TheBookBag.co.uk

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving story with depth and a lot of heart 3 July 2011
This is a fantastic book for children aged 9-12. I suppose it is probably more geared towards girls, but it has something for everyone in it, I think.

It made me cry in several places, and I cried through the last 20 pages or so. It tapped right into old wounds, Kate Maryon has a real skill for identifying with young people in crisis, and loss and love ran through this book in huge, sparkling veins.

Thoroughly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 29 Nov 2011
By Sunraye
Everything Kate writes is deeply moving and well thought out. Often tackling difficult issues. I bought this for my daughter, who wasn't a great reader but she reads every one of Kate's books. Lovely read.

By K. J. Noyes TOP 500 REVIEWER
I'm rating this a full 5 stars for the age group it's recommended for. A lovely little treat, discovering this author. It was pointed out to me as I'm 'minding' the author at a book event this month and have never read any of her books.

On first impressions, the cover indicted a heavily girl-oriented story, tween-focused on girly-type things. That is a mistake. And potentially putting off potential readers.

It's actually quite issue-laden, for a 9-12 book. Jemima's dad is a soldier and going back to Afghanistan. Fiercely loving and worried for him, Jemima tries to do everything she can (including some rather dangerous stunts) to get the army to send him back home. She's also a bit of a misfit in school and the centre of a quite bitter struggle between the popular group and her fellow army-brat Jessica, who for me was one of the more interesting characters.

It's certainly not a Louise Rennison / Princess Diaries light and fluffy read. It has a few shocks and expects its young readers to be able to cope with quite complex emotional situations.

Very impressed. Just wish the cover would be less girly to encourage a wider audience.

A million angels is very emotional.... Kind of like a rollercoaster of emotions really. She's always upset and tries to write the future. Kinda like Ned says in the book!
