The Colour of Bee Larkham’s Murder

1 Mins read

Sarah J Harris’s debut is unique and hugely engaging, featuring the story of 13-year-old Jasper who views the world in a way that’s different to the rest of us. He has synaesthesia and instead of hearing sounds, Jasper sees vivid colours that wouldn’t look out of place on an artist’s palette. He’s an artist himself, creating dazzling images based upon the sounds he hears, which could be birdsong, a piece of music… or murder. Meet a most unusual protagonist, his ex-marine father and Bee Larkham, a new neighbour who creates waves as soon as she arrives in their quiet suburban street in this entertaining read that will have you both laughing and crying. Read the full review here.
