It would be difficult for any reader to write their next big novel after writing the iconic 'Noughts and Crosses' series. But Malorie Blackman, in typical style, pulls it off again.
This time, Blackman enters the realms of fantasy horror, through the eyes of a doubting child. With its rather unusual plot, the book describes how the main character 'hops' into other people's nightmares after a school trip goes terrible wrong. The ending is perhaps the only weak point of the book, it leaves you feeling almost empty after the fullness of the rest of the book.
The book is truly spooky, with some of the nightmares truly spine-shivering material. Thanks you Malorie for another great read.
