islands, myths, and family. Amber Lee Dodd writes with tenderness

and thunder, and her storytelling is a bolt of brilliance.’ Kiran

Amelia Hester McLeod is named after two of her mum’s favourite

explorers. Two amazing, fearless, awesome women: Amelia Earhart

and Lady Hester Stanhope. But Amelia herself doesn’t always feel

very brave or very bright. She lives on a windblown island in a

creaky old house right beneath the North Star. Her dad is sad and

silent since her mum left them, and her absent-minded grandpa suddenly

seems convinced something strange is about to happen to her.

When Amelia makes a birthday wish to be reunited with her missing

mum, a wild magic is stirred from the sea…

A novel of courage and strength, packed full of adventure

and heroics but also with warmth and heart. ‘Adventure, mystery and

a zap of magic – this is a warm-hearted, engaging story with a

heroine you’ll love’ Robin Stevens
