Wilder Than Midnight
Cerrie Burnell
Theatre – 13:00 – 13:45

A bold and evocative new adventure novel from Cerrie Burnell, celebrating difference and found family.
Silverthorne is a place of secrets. A forest of twisting paths and tangled thorns. A castle with locked towers and whispers of tragedy. A village trapped between terrors known and unknown. But something is stirring in the
leaves . . .

Saffy is a good girl, tired of being told
to stick to the forest paths, and always
follow the rules. Aurelia is a hidden girl, locked in a castle tower, dreaming of escaping the fate she’s told awaits her.

Wild Rose is a fierce girl, raised by wolves, full of spells and fearlessness and cunning.

Together, they will change life in Silverthorne forever.
