In this brilliantly crafted book we immersed in the mind of Mina, the kooky girl who befriends Michael in Skellig and shares with him his discovery of the strange and wonderful fallen angel. My Name is Mina is Mina's diary and contains her thoughts about being a misfit, unable to fit in at school and eventually home schooled, coming to terms with the death of her father and the grief of her mother as well as herself, and her love of words. Deeply inspiring and hopeful that even in pain and loss there is learning and that it's okay not to fit, the very format of this book does not fit, typeface digressing into handwriting, pages of doodles and ideas for writing diaries that would help anyone with something to express.
