Twister chosen as one of the Metro’s kids books picks for the summer holidays.

The sun is shining and the temperature is certainly rising in Glasgow. I’m absolutely thrilled to say that Twister has been picked by the Metro as one of the best holiday books for kids this summer. A huge thank you to Imogen Russell Williams who wrote: Born in a cyclone, Twister lives up to her tempestuous name. Fierce and determined, she sets out to find her missing father, encountering a wood witch, a necklace with shape-changing powers, a strange new friend and an evil coat along the way. This is an unusual, gutsy and invigorating fantasy with a compelling narrative voice.

Twister: This summer’s must-read as picked by The Guardian.


Absolutely delighted The Guardian has chosen Twister for its ‘If you only read one book this summer make it this one’ article. Holy smoke! Here’s what they had to say:

Book for 8-12s
Twister by Juliette Forrest
Twister’s father has gone missing. Looking for him, she finds a witch in the woods, a magical necklace that can hold souls and transform its wearer – and a terrifying enemy. A soaring fantasy with a refreshingly down to earth heroine.
