My Other Life: A Bloomsbury Reader, Paperback / softback Book

My Other Life: A Bloomsbury Reader Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Patricia Hu

Part of the Bloomsbury Readers series

Paperback / softback


Thought-provoking contemporary fantasy from best-selling author Polly Ho-Yen. Mae spends a lot of time in hospitals. She's had asthma since she was little and sometimes she just can't breathe.

She was in hospital the very first time she saw the hole - a tear in the universe which seems to appear only to her.

Before she knows it she is drawn into a parallel world, where things aren't quite the same... This powerful fantasy story is full of big ideas and a great way to talk about chronic illness with children.

It has beautiful black-and-white illustrations from Patricia Hu throughout, and is ideal for children who are developing as readers. The Bloomsbury Readers series is packed with brilliant books to get children reading independently in Key Stage 2, with book-banded stories by award-winning authors like double Carnegie Medal winner Geraldine McCaughrean and Waterstones Prize winner Patrice Lawrence, covering a wide range of genres and topics.

With charming illustrations and online guided reading notes written by the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE), this series is ideal for reading both in the classroom and at home.
