A Secret of Birds & Bone by Kiran Millwood Hargrave, the Sunday Times-bestselling author of The Girl of Ink & Stars, and winner of the Waterstones Children's Book Prize.
In an Italian city ravaged by plague, Sofia's mother carves beautiful mementoes from the bones of loved ones. But one day, she doesn't return home. Did her work lead her into danger? Sofia and her little brother Ermin are sent to the convent orphanage but soon escape, led by an enigmatic new friend and their pet crow, Corvith.
Together they cross the city underground, following clues in bones up to the towers of Siena, where - circled by magpies - the children find the terrible truth.
A darkly beautiful historical novel featuring Kiran's trademark magical realism and an enthralling mystery.
