London, United Kingdom, August 15, 2013 --(PR.com)-- "Briony Hatch"- Ginny & Penelope Skinner

Sometimes a book is more than just words and paper. She is a friend. When you’re with her the world is a magical place...

This September Limehouse Books will release "Briony Hatch," a graphic novel written and illustrated by sisters Ginny and Penelope Skinner.

Briony Hatch hates reality. She prefers the fantasy world of her favourite novels: The Starling Black Adventures, in which ghosts are real and you can cast magic spells to defeat your enemies.

In her real life, Briony’s parents are getting divorced and her school friends are preoccupied by losing weight and shagging boys. Briony has tried all Starling Black’s magic spells in her bedroom but they don’t seem to be working. Her mother wants her to grow up, get her head out of those books and pack – they’re leaving Dad and moving into a bungalow the other side of town. Worst of all, Briony has almost finished the last ever Starling Black novel; life will soon have no meaning at all.

But Briony is about to learn that fantasy and reality aren’t always so easy to distinguish, and life doesn’t have to lose its magic just because you’re growing up...

With its blend of magic and humour "Briony Hatch" will appeal to teenagers and adults alike.
