I bought a copy of The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge a few days ago, to give to my niece.  I read a few lines myself at first, then soon realised I had sped through quite a few chapters and was engrossed, which is why I was surprised by the article in the guardian about Young Adult Fiction at the Edinburgh Festival.  I’ve posted a link.  Have a wee lookey:

I’m going to post a little review on The Lie Tree at some point once I’ve finished .  Am off to bed to drink in another few chapters now. My niece will have to wait!  Hope she doesn’t mind it’s been well thumbed.
