The Burning by Laura Bates


Reviewed by Alex, our Children’s Bookseller:

‘This book should be prescribed to every teenage girl. With a clever mix of flashbacks to hundreds of years ago and the treatment of a local ‘witch’ and the present day story of a girl who sent a topless picture of herself to her boyfriend. He shared it with the school, she was labelled a ‘slut’. Fast forward and she and her mum have moved away, starting again, away from the scandal. But social media has a way of following you wherever you go…

Infuriating, empowering, well written and essential reading for our times, you will find yourself punching the air and reaching for Laura’s next book at the end.’
