A group of young authors aged 10 to 15 have published a children’s adventure novel.

The 16 Irthlingborough Junior School and Huxlow Science College pupils spent more than a year writing and illustrating Reflection of Evil. All profits will go to charity.

The fast-paced adventure story tells the story of twins Amelia and Daniel Hunter and the quest thrust upon them.

Irthlingborough Junior School headteacher Susan Drake said: “This book, written by children for children, is absolutely stunning from start to finish.

“A truly remarkable collaboration and a credit to those young people involved.”

Headteacher of Huxlow Science College Michael Malton said: “We are very proud of our students, who have worked extremely hard on making this book a success.”

Reflection of Evil is available for purchase from Huxlow Science College for £6.50 with all profits going to the charities of the students’ choice, Nanna animal sanctuary in Irthlingborough and Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The book can be viewed on the Huxlow school website www.huxlow.northants.sch.uk.
