Victoria Stitch. Bad and Glittering by Harriet Muncaster

Victoria Stitch. Bad and Glittering has all the ingredients young readers adore – magic, friends, crystals, beautiful colours, flittering wings and betrayal! The gothic feel makes it perfect for dark Autumn nights. With a lengthy, detailed story as well as engaging illustrations and fun characters, it’s a great first step into Middle Grade level.

In a world of magical wisklings, babies born in diamonds are destined to inherit the royal throne. When diamond twins Celestine and Victoria Stitch are born, something goes slightly wrong. There’s an impurity in their diamond, a bad omen, and they are denied their royal birth right. Victoria Stitch cannot let it go and lives her life in the shadow of what might have been. She is heartbroken that her sister never had the chance of being adopted into a loving family and Victoria is obsessed with the power that should have been hers!

When Victoria Stitch meets Ursuline, she decides it is time to pursue all that is rightfully hers. Queen Cassiopeia won’t be on the throne forever and Victoria must make her mark. But is she willing to risk her relationship with her sister? Will her quest for power bring them together or pull them apart forever? The unique bond of their very special twin relationship will be tested to breaking point and things will never be the same again.
