The Red Abbey Chronicles: Naondel by Maria Turtschaninoff, translated by Annie Prime. As previously mentioned, I don’t normally like Young Adult, which apparently this is, but I liked the first in this series, and I like this one too. It’s not exactly an easy read — some of the characters are really terrible people — but I’m keen to read the next one.
My Name Is Leon by Kit de Waal. This is really good. I have some experience of a couple of its major themes, and it brought up some difficult memories for me, but it was very much worth reading.
