The Rewilding of Molly McFlynn

Here's your chance to win a copy of The Rewilding of Molly McFlynn by Sue Reed, a young adult book described by the author as "about a girl who learns that it is okay to be herself, that we do not have to create a false self in order to fit in.” We have five copies to be won.

About the book:

It’s spring 2020 and 15-year-old Molly McFlynn is uprooted from town life by her mam to live with her bohemian grandparents in rural Northumberland. Molly is furious – her friends abandon her, the food is inedible and her grandmother is doing strange things in the garden at night.

Life takes a new direction when she meets a girl in the woods who appears to be on the run. Martha is from the seventeenth century, and a life lived on the edge of society. She is fleeing from the witchfinder and the men who have hurled her mother, Ann Watson, into the dungeons in Newcastle. However, as Covid strikes, and a local witch hunt takes place, Martha’s is not the only life that is in danger. Molly must stand up for what is right, help heal family rifts and come to the rescue in a moment of peril. As Molly’s friendship with Martha grows, Molly reconciles with her true self, develops a love of nature and moves away from her consumerist lifestyle.

"We all need a Molly in our lives. Brave and impetuous, with an honest, distinctive and timely voice, this girl is the real thing. I loved getting to know her." Ann Coburn, author of Glint
