“A charming, heartbreaking and sweetly funny debut novel celebrating differences. Elle McNicoll is one to watch.” – Susin Nielsen
“The definitive autistic children’s books” – Lizzie Huxley-Jones
“What a fabulous book! A Kind Of Spark is a brilliant debut. It’s narrated by Addie, an autistic girl who teaches us to question our assumptions and embrace our differences. She is such a brilliant protagonist – I miss her” – Lisa Thompson
“Vividly drawn” – The Observer
A Kind of Spark tells the story of 11-year old Addie as she campaigns for a memorial in memory of the witch trials that took place in her Scottish hometown. Addie knows there’s more to the story of these ‘witches’, just like there is more to hers. Can Addie challenge how the people in her town see her, and her autism, and make herself heard?
