Críticas:

"Gourlay has created something very special here . . . [Shine] is about reinvention and the faces we present to the world . . . all wrapped up in an exciting and perfectly paced story with a disturbing and dramatic climax. . . . She has truly found her voice." (Philip Ardagh Guardian)

"[An] irresistibly exotic story of family, friendship, ghosts and legends . . . A sparkling jewel of a story." (Booktrust)

"Both thrilling and emotive" (Inis)

"Has you laughing and crying at the same time. You despair at people’s prejudice. But then there are people who make you believe in humanity again. I can’t tell you what style Shine is written in. You just don’t notice. It just feels perfect." (Bookwitch)

"There is a deftness of touch . . . This is a moving story about family secrets and the importance of communication and connection." (Jake Inky Droplets)

Reseña del editor:

Monsters are in the eye of the beholder.



Rosa suffers from a rare condition that renders her mute. She lives on the strange island of Mirasol where the rain never seems to stop.



In the gloom of the island, its superstitious population are haunted by all sorts of fears . . . they shun people who suffer from Rosa's condition, believing them to be monsters. So Rosa must live hidden away in an isolated house with its back to the rest of the world, with only the internet for a social life.



But Rosa has no desire to leave Mirasol. This is where her mother died and every night she lights a candle on the windowsill. The islanders believe this is the way to summon ghosts, and Rosa wants her mother back.



One day she is befriended by a boy online who calls himself Ansel95 – and she quickly realizes that this is one friendship that can take place in the real world. Can she really trust him? What does he want from her?



And then Mother turns up at the front door.



From the author of the critically-acclaimed Tall Story comes a haunting, intense and moving novel which weaves myths and ghosts into a modern setting. As Rosa's social life blossoms, how will she seize the freedom to be who she really is?
