Something bad happened here something that should never have taken placeI ve changed my mind I don t want to remember 4 12 stars Okay we need to talk about Frances Hardinge Despite seeing positive review after positive review I have been putting her books off for years Partly because they re supposed to be middle grade and partly because I couldn t really make sense of the blurbs they sounded just weirdWell Tatiana finally made me read The Lie Tree which gave way to a weekend full of Hardinge madness Because oh her books are weird but in the best possible creative original way Sometimes I guess I have never read anything like this is the best kind of complimentCuckoo Song is best described as a dark fairy tale The main characters are young and there is nothing unsuitable for children and yet this is far from your typical middle grade book It is inventive and clever The story is full of metaphor genuinely creepy scenes and an underlying tale about family and warIt s like a paranormal historical horror mystery And it is fantastic The writing is gorgeous full of lush but scary descriptions and the plot is so layered and thought provoking I would recommend this for children teens and adults alikeThe story opens with Triss awakening after a mysterious accident There are things she can t uite remember and things that just don t seem right Her sister refuses to believe she is really Triss She begins to see and hear things that she shouldn t And she is unable to uench her insatiable hungerAs Triss recovers she discovers about her life her family and its secrets Soon it s unclear whether Triss is losing her mind or whether her accident triggered something horrific It s a frightening supernatural tale on the surface and a uiet moving story about grief underneathRead itBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Pinterest

I am declaring this to be one of my favourite reads of 2015 I am a long time lover of Frances Hardinge s work but this is my favourite book of hers Cuckoo Song has all the things I expect from tale by Hardinge specifically fabulous use of language unrestrained creativity and just the right amount of darkness Also present are a trademark host of deeply complex and well developed characters who not content to sit still in their pigeon holes shift and change our perceptions of them thoughout the story And what a multi layered story it is By turns dark family drama and frightening faerie tale mixed with dashes of excitement humour fear and love it is by any measure brilliant

I don t read middle grade because I prefer adult themes in my stories but if this book is anything to go by I ve been missing out This was just superbly written completely engrossing and just fantastic Mummy help me please help me everything s strange and nothing s right and my mind feels as if it s made up of pieces and some of them are missing The story is about a family who suffering from a terrible grief make a deal with the devil the Architect As they try to nurse their ailing daughter back to health after an accident that left her different things start to unravel and no force of will can put things right again Triss has no memory of what happened to her but she knows there are pieces of her memory that are no longer there and as she s convincing herself that she just needs time she picks up her favorite childhood doll and the doll starts screaming Things go from bad to worse as Triss tries harder and harder to be the same girl she was before her accident but when she learns the truth about what happened she knows she can never go back The relationships in this story are outstanding and watching these two sisters learn to be sisters instead of adversaries was touching Pen is a prickly little thing not at all content to conform to what her parents think she should be like and I love her She is fierce and brave and totally believable in her youth and along with the force that is Violet I was totally at the mercy of these people and their tangled lives This story is really clean but outstandingly creepy and I m completely entranced by the world that Hardinge created I would not hesitate to let my nearly nine year old son read this but be warned it might be too scary for a younger kid The writing oh my goodness the writing is superb There are deeper themes than just that of a girl trying to find herself the effects of war on a societal level as well as personal the depths of cruelty people can be capable of in the name of vengeance autonomy forgiveness love I m not elouent enough to say how amazing I think this book is and I can t recommend it highly enough

    SUMMARY ↠ PRIMACLEANSEPLUSUK.CO.UK ¹ Frances Hardinge Pdf/E–book (Cuckoo Song) I was watching the third Hobbit movie the other day bear with me I'm going somewhere with this with no particular pleasure There are few things in life painful to a children's librarian than watching an enjoyable adventure for kids lengthened and turned into adult centric fare then sliced up into three sections Still it’s always interesting to see how filmmakers wish to adapt material and as I sat there only moderately
