Présentation de l'éditeur
'Everyone should read Frances Hardinge. Everyone. Right now.' Patrick Ness
Cuckoo Song by Frances Hardinge, Costa Award winning author of The Lie Tree, is a fantastically eerie and beautifully written novel, and was shortlisted for the prestigious Carnegie Medal.
The first things to shift were the doll's eyes, the beautiful grey-green glass eyes. Slowly they swivelled, until their gaze was resting on Triss's face. Then the tiny mouth moved, opened to speak.
'What are you doing here?' It was uttered in tones of outrage and surprise, and in a voice as cold and musical as the clinking of cups. 'Who do you think you are? This is my family.'
When Triss wakes up after an accident, she knows that something is very wrong. She is insatiably hungry; her sister seems scared of her and her parents whisper behind closed doors. She looks through her diary to try to remember, but the pages have been ripped out.
Soon Triss discovers that what happened to her is more strange and terrible than she could ever have imagined, and that she is quite literally not herself. In a quest find the truth she must travel into the terrifying Underbelly of the city to meet a twisted architect who has dark designs on her family - before it's too late . . .

I'll admit, I was kind of afraid to read this. I'm not one for scary stories and it's classified under horror! But I'm so glad I put on my big girl panties and dove in. It's not at all terrifying or horrifying or anything like that. It's AMAZING as all Hardinge's stories are. I never should have doubted.
I'd read somewhere that this was kind of Pinocchio story, and I guess I see where that reviewer was coming from, but I don't really view it like that at all. It's a changeling story, told from the changeling's point of view. And it's wonderful. Ms. Hardinge's imagination never fails to impress, but she might have outdone herself this time. This book is right up there with my all time favorite of hers: A Face Like Glass. She didn't invent a whole new world this time, but fit one in and around 1920s England. The 'Besider' world and characters have all the marvelous wonder and weirdness I've come to expect from my favorite author.
The family, their problems and love, and well-off roaring-twenties setting -- all feel quite real. I think telling this from Trista's point of view was just absolute genius and I'm sorry the book is over.
I'm now at the end of all the Hardinge books I have to read and I will commence with being terribly impatient for whatever she writes next.
This is a changeling story
I will definitely be looking to read more from this author.
