Winner of the Costa Book of the Year 2015, The Lie Tree is a dark and powerful novel from universally acclaimed author, Frances Hardinge. It was not enough. All knowledge- any knowledge - called to Faith, and there was a delicious, poisonous pleasure in stealing it unseen. Faith has a thirst for science and secrets that the rigid confines of her class cannot supress. And so it is that she discovers her disgraced father's journals, filled with the scribbled notes and theories of a man driven close to madness. Tales of a strange tree which, when told a lie, will uncover a truth: the greater the lie, the greater the truth revealed to the liar. Faith's search for the tree leads her into great danger - for where lies seduce, truths shatter . . . 'Brilliant, dark, thrilling, utterly original' Patrick Ness 'The Lie Tree is a wonder. I can't think of anyone who would not love this story' Matt Haig 'I loved this book so much' Lucy Mangan 'Complex and intelligent: a lustrous, delicious romp.' Philip Womack, The Telegraph

Σε μια μικρή πόλη της δυτικής Νιγηρίας τέσσερα νεαρά αδέλφια –ο μικρότερος είναι εννιά και ο μεγαλύτερος δεκαπέντε– εκμεταλλεύονται την απουσία του πατέρα τους από το σπίτι για να πάνε για ψάρεμα στο απαγορευμένο κοντινό ποτάμι. Εκεί θα συναντήσουν έναν επικίνδυνο τρελό που θα προφητεύσει ότι ο μεγαλύτερος αδελφός θα δολοφονηθεί από ένα από τα αδέλφια του. Αυτή η προφητεία θα σταθεί η αφορμή να διαλυθεί ο ισχυρός δεσμός τους και η αφετηρία μιας αλυσίδας τραγικών γεγονότων σχεδόν μυθικών διαστάσεων. Μια ιστορία αγάπης, μίσους και εκδίκησης που διαδραματίζεται με φόντο τις κοινωνικοπολιτικές εξελίξεις στη Νιγηρία της δεκαετίας του ’90. Μια συγκλονιστική αφήγηση με τη φωνή του μικρότερου αδελφού, του Μπέντζαμιν, και εξαιρετική χρήση της γλώσσας. Αναφορές στην αφρικάνικη φύση, στους μύθους και τις δοξασίες της Νιγηρίας, καταγραφή της καθημερινότητας με κύριο άξονα τη σύγκρουση μεταξύ παραδοσιακού και δυτικού τρόπου ζωής, σε ένα έξοχο πρώτο βιβλίο ενός λογοτέχνη που αξιοποιεί με μοντέρνο τρόπο την αφρικάνικη αφηγηματική παράδοση και φαίνεται να έχει μακρά καριέρα μπροστά του.

'Everyone should read Frances Hardinge. Everyone. Right now' Patrick Ness Cuckoo Song by Frances Hardinge, the Costa Award-winning author of The Lie Tree, is a fantastically eerie and beautifully written novel, and was shortlisted for the prestigious Carnegie Medal. The first things to shift were the doll's eyes, the beautiful grey-green glass eyes. Slowly they swivelled, until their gaze was resting on Triss's face. Then the tiny mouth moved, opened to speak. 'What are you doing here?' It was uttered in tones of outrage and surprise, and in a voice as cold and musical as the clinking of cups. 'Who do you think you are? This is my family.' When Triss wakes up after an accident, she knows that something is very wrong. She is insatiably hungry; her sister seems scared of her and her parents whisper behind closed doors. She looks through her diary to try to remember, but the pages have been ripped out. Soon Triss discovers that what happened to her is more strange and terrible than she could ever have imagined, and that she is quite literally not herself. In a quest to find the truth she must travel into the terrifying Underbelly of the city to meet a twisted architect who has dark designs on her family - before it's too late . . .

My name is Georgia known as "Sista" My hometown is Augusta, Georgia; a private person is how I choose to be. I have a family of three plus me. My writings are a blessing from God who I have dedicated my life to serve; I pray you are given the vision to see some of my experiences through words. My poetic poems are my way of communicating some of the obstacles I have faced, instead of a long writing about me, I prefer hearing about your obstacles while journeying this race. My journey has not been easy, but I know I'm not alone; God before me and encouraging friends, my journey has been strong. Mr. Tyrone Russell, the only best male friend of mines, felt something in reading my poems; supported and invested his time. Ms. Helen Alexander is like a sister to me; she also, felt these were poems that the world should see. God Bless!
