A few offers that people might be interested in in kindle's 'half term deals':

Journey to the River Sea by Eva Ibbotson is 99p.
The Owl Service by Alan Garner is £1.49.
The Moon of Gomrath by Alan Garner is 99p.
Katy by Jacqueline Wilson is £1.99.
The Phantom Tolbooth by Norman Juster is 99p.
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell is 99p (a sort of gay Harry Potter with less fat shaming and a lot of awesomeness).
Enchanted Glass by Diana Wynne Jones is £1.49.

Thanks Abbey, I bought this entirely based on your review and really enjoyed it! I did feel like the ending could be more satisying (e.g. did Simon ever figure out who his parents were?) but a fun read nonetheless!

I love Enchanted Glass. It's one of my favourite DWJ books.

And Charlotte Macleod mentioned somewhere on this thread, though the last book was awful. She had Alzheimers so I imagine someone cobbled it together from notes.

I have just finished Enchanted Glass and loved it....

I didn't know that about Charlotte Macleod, how sad. Another one like Agatha Christie then....

Yay, glad you enjoyed it! I do like Rainbow Rowell; she writes good characters.
