Vorwort
With echoes of Coraline and Tom's Midnight Garden, this is a gothic, spunky novel about the power of friendship, real or imagined.

Autorentext
Jessica Miller is an Australian writer. She was born in London, spent most of her life in Brisbane and now lives in Berlin, where she writes books and studies German. Elizabeth and Zenobia, which was shortlisted for the Text Prize, is her first novel.

Klappentext

This gothic novel about the power of real or imagined friendship charts the development of Elizabeth's bond with the aspirational Zenobia who only Elizabeth can see, as they move into a new home full of dark and foreboding secrets. Shortlisted for Reading's Children's Book Prize in Australia.



Zusammenfassung

Elizabeth is a thoughtful, quiet girl, ever cautious and just a little bit timid. Zenobia is everything Elizabeth would like to be, and more: bold and unafraid and wildly imaginative. The problem is ... only Elizabeth can see Zenobia.

When they arrive at their new home, the imposing Witheringe House, Zenobia is convinced it's haunted and eagerly tries to contact a spirit presence. Elizabeth is relieved when her efforts come to nothing.

But then this dark and foreboding manor begins to reveal some extraordinary secrets...

Shortlisted for a major Australian children's writing prize, this beautiful novel is about finding courage, about friendship, about the power of the imagination. With all the hallmarks of a children's classic, this would sit on the shelf between Neil Gaiman's Coraline and Robin Stevens's Murder Most Unladylike. Jessica Miller is an outstanding new talent.
