Sunday Times Children's Book of the Week

Spilled Water by Sally Grindley

This book, now in paperback, won a Nestl´┐Ż Smarties Gold award last year, selected by children from a shortlist chosen by adults. Its clear, pace y first-person narrative of grief, loss and hardship, mitigated by the kindness of a few good people, evokes a harsh and formal society in which girls are little valued, and in which Si-yan needs all her resilience to survive.
