Books from Scotland's children's choice this month is a hotly-anticipated read - Shiver (Floris, 2009) is the sequel to Alex Nye's award-winning Chill (Floris, 2006). A year on from laying the ghost of Catherine Morton to rest, the Morton children thought that they had uncovered all their family secrets. But when Dunadd House looks set to be sold, the unexpected starts happening again and the children discover that history has one more surprise up its sleeve...Chill won the 2007 Royal Mail Award for 8-11 year olds and many of the book's young fans suspected that there was still some unfinished business at Dunadd House. Will the author resolve the mystery once and for all or keep them guessing? There's only one way to find out! You can borrow Chill from the library already; Shiver is on order.
To mark the launch of the book, Alex will be visiting schools, libraries and bookshops across Scotland to inspire, educate and motivate young readers. Contact Laura Armstrong at Floris Books for details, or to arrange an event.
