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.

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..." T2 "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." Funday Times "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." John McLay "Feather Boy is simply fabulous... an emotionally intense suspense novel of the highest order" Michael Thorn, Achuka
