Lily by Holly Webb
Orchard Books ISBN 9781408313497
Lily's family were once powerful magicians but now hide away largely unseen. While Lily is allowed to roam around doing as she pleases, her sister Georgie, as the special one, is being trained in magic. Lily no longer resents her sister as she decides she is very lucky not to be seen as special. When Lily discovers their mother's dark plot involving dreadful spells and magical weapons, she realises she must rescue Georgie. This is the first story in a wonderful new series. It is action-packed - a real page-turner of a book.
