Description

Her first book for adults, The Mercies, debuted as The Times number 1 bestseller, and at number 5 in the Sunday Times Bestseller Charts. I would love to come back to this family a little way in the future and see how things are working out for them. However, they both start to suspect all is not what it seems when children from the orphanage start to disappear through the night.

Jako mama jestem wrażliwsza, kiedy dzieciakom przytrafia się krzywda i patrząc na drogę, jaką pokonali, żeby ratować mamę zasługuje na aplauz. Podczas gdy "Dziewcyznka z atramentu i gwiazd" wabiła piękną oprawą graficzną i tematyką kartografii, "Wyspa na końcu świata" poruszała bardzo trudny temat i opowiadała o losach ludzi zarażonych trądem i zesłanych na odizolowaną wyspę, o tyle "Sofia, dziewczyna z kościanego domu" opowiada historię córki rzeźbiarki z kości, która wciąga już od pierwszych stron.O ile poprzednie książki autorki były dla mnie przyjemnymi lekturami, o tyle "Sofia, dziewczyna z kościanego domu" totalnie mnie oczarowała. But what was mother running from when she ran into the path of the horses at the Palio, Siena’s famous race? Not only the most sought-after bone crafter in Italy, Sofia thinks that her mother’s gift for binding magic to her bone creations might make her the best in the world. I was not expecting the level of creepiness behind it as children seem to vanish completely from the orphanage, building a mystery I wasn't anticipating going into this novel, but the pay-off is so great. It is filled with beautiful messages and hope that the next generation will do much better than the one that came before it.

Bardzo wartościowa ksiazka, właśnie takie chciałabym widzieć na półce w biblioteczce moich dzieci, a także w swojej. In an Italian city ravaged by plague, Sofia's mother carves beautiful mementoes from the bones of loved ones. When I'm not reading, I also like knitting, crafty things, baking, eating, walking, taking photos, watching traumatising medical dramas and nurturing a close relationship with my sofa and blankets.Her debut YA novel The Deathless Girls was published in 2019, and was shortlisted for the YA Book Prize, and long listed for the CILIP Carnegie Medal.

The start was a bit confusing for me but it all soon started to make sense and I got Jordan's more artsy bed to this story the more I read! Poważniejsze tematy są tutaj przedstawione w sposób bardzo przystępny, a po samą książkę mogą sięgać także starsi czytelnicy. Every chapter is just gripping and you just get lost in a world of curious and magic, with a bit of truth mixed in. A Secret of Birds and Bone is the story of Sofia and her family: her mother, her brother Ermin and their pet crow, Corvith (excuse me, yes, I would like a pet crow, thank you kind sir).

Niespodziewanie dostaje pilne zlecenie od tajemniczej postaci, której Sofia nie zna, i choć doskonale wie, że jej mama nie chce się go podjąć, to ku jej zdumieniu robi to. The worldbuilding and characters are vivid, and I never struggle to feel like I’m walking alongside the characters. Jak znasz jakąś książkę autorki to wiesz, że potrafi stworzyć nieziemski klimat, a postacie są tak wykreowane, że oczami wyobraźni jesteś w stanie widzieć je oraz poczuć wszystko to, co otacza danego bohatera jak zimno, zapach lawendy, czy zapach kościanego domu.

Together they cross the city underground, following clues in bones up to the towers of Siena, where – circled by magpies – the children find the terrible truth . The writing style and descriptions were fantastic and this definitely kept you wanting to turn the pages throughout.All about her were skeletons: by the thin shafts of light flitting in from the slits in the ribcage shutters she could see the bed about her, built from tibias and fibulas. Together they cross the city underground, following clues in bones up to the towers of Siena, where - circled by magpies - the children find the terrible truth . However, the ending disappointed me slightly - it felt a little rushed, and I was mildly disappointed that a large part of it rests somewhat upon fortuitous convenience.
