In a Nutshell #3

Cuckoo Song by Frances Hardinge

‘You remind me of a little girl I knew years ago. One day, all of a sudden, her head fell off. It was very sad.’ – a line I read about five times because it kept making me chuckle.

Cuckoo Song had a definite Miss Peregrine’s vibe to it; which is great as that happens to be one of my favourite series. However it wasn’t at all what I had expected upon turning to that first page. It was a nice surprise though.

An intriguing read from start to finish. Incredibly imaginative concept. Well written + thoughtfully constructed. 4 stars.
