By Ursula Dubosarsky (Penguin)

Mary and Grace were siblings, best friends, together forever … or so they thought. They loved eachother and had an unbreakable bond, but after Mary’s passing, Grace has to cope in the dark, grey world without her sister.

Abyssnia is a beautifully crafted story about young children being hypnotised by dolls. The story flows smoothly, live a river, creating grooves in your mind and stirring up your emotions. Abruptly stopping, this masterpiece ends in a cliffhanger.

Ursula Dubrosarsky is a fantastic writer, having written many books over the years. She will certainly become your favourite author as he is one of mine now. This book will entice readers aged 9 years and above.
