A KIND OF SPARK tells the story of 11-year-old Addie as she campaigns for a memorial in memory of the witch trials that took place in her Scottish hometown. Addie knows there's more to the story of these 'witches', just like there is more to hers. Can Addie challenge how the people in her town see her, and her autism, and make her voice heard?


I adored this book. I think the fact that the author has autism made the book, even more, truer and it gave you a real sense of what people with autism have to go through. How Addie had to cope with being bullied and having that support from Keedie really showed how autism was stressful but brought the family together. I think this book shows that even with obstacles in our life, we can do anything we put our minds to. I would recommend this book to ages 10 and over.
