Sally Nicholls Trio

One of the most exciting young names in fiction – not just an up-and-coming star but already a brightly shining one – Sally Nicholls shows her power and versatility in three remarkable novels exploring life, death and change. In her Waterstone’s Prize winner, Ways to Live Forever, she tackles the subject of a boy’s terminal cancer with candour and grace. Can Sam find a way to live a whole lifetime in the months that are left to him? Next, Season of Secrets links a heartbroken child with an age-old Pagan legend in a haunting story of grief, healing and wild magic. Finally, the compelling new novel All Fall Down goes back to the time of the plague, showing how the tragedy that strikes a young girl’s Yorkshire village is also the start of something rich and new.
