The first children's book by Joanne Harris writer of chocolat. Got the priviledge to read this before it came out officially and I absolutely loved it. Second installment will be out later this year, Nov 11.

Maddy is born with a rune mark on her hand and everyone in the village has made her an outsider because they know that rune marks are part of the old Gods and involve the use of magic. There is only one that person labels her by the name of rune mark and she gains only one friend or is he? Maddy spends most of her time alone.. She goes through many adventures and interesting experience and learn great deal in the world below.

This book is a great tale of how being an outsider can sometimes prove to be very interesting and adventurous indeed and cause you to learn a lot about yourself. It also shows children and people in general no matter what someone says about you have a very important rule to play. The book is filled with adventures and lovely fantasy experiences.

It is a must read for a more experience reader but from the age of 9.
Both boys and girls would enjoy it and even adults I loved it
