Mirror Magic
I read it (an adult) & to Sindy aged 11
Clever, creepy, and gorgeously magical, with a heroine I utterly adored and really fabulous world-building. Set in a town on the edge of Victorian England and Wales - *and* the Unworld of Faerie - Unwise Magic has some of the fabulously magical Victorian atmosphere that I loved in Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, but the story itself is really original. It's wonderfully suspenseful, lean and fast-paced and full of intrigue, with characters I loved - a perfect MG fantasy novel, in other words. I was lucky enough to get an early copy, but the first time I tried to read it, I had to give up because I was so desperately jealous that I hadn't written it myself! I'm still jealous, honestly, but I went back to it anyway because it's so delicious, I couldn't resist reading it after all.

I thought Claire Fayers's first two books were both really fun, but in this book, she's lifted her writing up to a whole new level. I absolutely loved it.
