Medusa by Jessie Burton, illustrate­d by Olivia Lomenech Gill

- BLOOMSBURY YA, £14.99 (EBOOK, £10.49) REVIEW BY EMILY CHUDY

A feminist retelling of the famous

Greek myth of the woman with a head of snakes, Medusa explores the story of the girl beyond her monstrous reputation. Written in beautifull­y lyrical language by The Miniaturis­t author Jessie Burton and brought to life with stunning illustrati­ons by Olivia Lomenech Gill, Medusa is perfect for young adults looking to dive deeper into the story of Medusa and the strength, love, and resilience that actually characteri­ses her. Filled with vulnerabil­ity, raw emotion, betrayal and self-acceptance, this is a story that transcends its ancient origins and is a surprising­ly relevant tale for modern girls.
