Summary

Violet has always been in the shadow of her mesmerising, controlling brother, Will - by turns delightful and terrifying. Now that Will has learnt a shocking secret about his own past, things seem to be getting worse. Violet retreats further into a fantasy world built around the fairy characters created by her favourite author, Casper Dream.

The arrival of Jasmine, a new girl at school who immediately befriends Violet, seemed like it might change Violet's life for the better and allow her to break free of Will's spell.

Okay

Not one of J's best. It dragged on a little bit and was a bit boring. Fell asleep half way though. Aa the case with other JW books, it was beautifully written with an emotional twist.

A fast, fantastic listen!

I was so engrossed in this story that I finished it in less than two days. I loved the fact that the siblings were the best of friends as well as mortal enemies. - 11 yr old
