The Black Air

The Black Air

Young adult novel

In a remote village overshadowed by a gruesome legend and ancient superstitions, who can say what’s real, what’s not, and what should stay buried deep inside your head? The Black Air is a spellbinding contemporary novel with a dark mystery at its heart. Set in the depths of rural Lancashire as a community marks the 400th anniversary of the Long Byrne witches’ deaths, this is a story about obsession, mental health, disordered eating, the supernatural, and the lengths that teenage girls will go to for the sake of all-consuming female friendships.

Available 7th September 2023 from UCLan Publishing
