A story of dark emotions and strange friendship, Doll is the eagerly awaited new title from Nicky Singer, following the triumph of her first children’s book, Feather Boy.
Tilly's biker mother gave Tilly a doll when she was on her deathbed. There is something strange about the doll, something dangerous – something which brings Tilly into the path of Jan, a South American boy with his own problems. But there are questions that have not been answered. Is Tilly's mother really dead, or is there a more painful reason for her absence?

Praise for FEATHER BOY:
“Inventive, original and full of surprises, it’s the sort of dazzling debut novel that most publishers would fall over themselves to snap up…”
“Feather Boy is the most intelligent book for youngsters I’ve read for a very long time. Every 12-year-old will see a bit of themself in Robert and won’t be able to put this book down until Feather Boy’s emotional, thought-provoking climax. Fabulous.”
“Feather Boy is more than just a story about Bullying. It’s bigger than that. It’s about finding your voice, shouting from the rooftops about something you believe in, refusing to back down, never giving up. It’s enormously uplifting.”
“Feather Boy is simply fabulous… an emotionally intense suspense novel of the highest order”
Michael Thorn, Achuka
TILLY: Sometimes I think my brain is full of locked boxes. And that one day there will be too many boxes and my brain will explode. Then fourteen years of scary things will cascade to the floor and finally I'll have to look. But not now. Not yet.
JAN: The stars of the cold north are not visible to southern eyes, the eyes of his mother. If he were a real Chilean boy, what stars would shine for him? How can he imagine his mother if he cannot imagine her sky?
We are the misfits.
We are the motherless.
We share so much.
But we have nothing in common.
We are twin souls
But we have never met.
