THIS EDITION NOT FOR SALE IN REPUBLIC OF SOUTH AFRICA.NOMINATED FOR 2015 CARNEGIE MEDALA Young Adult novel set in South Africa.Young Erin Dearlove has lost everything in a violent attack on her family. Shenow lives with her bohemian aunt Kate in a run-down apartment block. Lockedinto a fantasy of her previous life, she shuns all overtures of friendship fromher new neighbours, until she meets Mr Devilskein, the demon who lives onthe top floor... and opens a door into another world.Just as Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book reworked Kipling's The Jungle Book for a modern audience with a liking for the supernatural, Devilskein & Dearlove is a darker, more edgy, contemporary reworking of Frances Hodgson Burnett's classic The Secret Garden. An orphaned teenager is taken in by a reluctant distant relative, and in her new home makes an unexpected friend and finds a secret realm. "Alex Smith's quirky imagination knows no bounds." - André Brink
