#6Degrees: The Jungle Book to... (Sofi Croft guest post)

I'm really looking forward to reading Indigo's Dragon by Sofi Croft, coming in June from Accent YA, so it was great to have her on the blog today taking part in the 6 Degrees feature!

The Jungle Book, one of my all time favourite books, was reimagined by Neil Gaiman in The Graveyard Book, where instead of being raised by animals, an orphaned boy is raised by amicable ghosts.

Another book with a friendly ghost is Jessica’s Ghost by Andrew Norriss, in which the main character, Francis, is a boy who loves fashion. 

The Young Elites by Marie Lu also features a boy with an eye for fashion, Raffaele, who is a malfetto with supernatural abilities.

Superpowers are also found in Burning Midnight by Will McIntosh, where they are imparted to people by mysterious coloured spheres.

And finally a book containing a different type of balls - a story about basketball and brotherhood, written in verse, is The Crossover by Kwame Alexander.

Follow Sofi on Twitter where she's @croftdragon.
