Night Shift by Debi Gliori
Three Words: Beautiful, Poignant, Thoughtful
I love the illustrations & how few words there are. Many feel a depth of despair, or inadequacy, or loneliness, or any other negative emotion that leaves them with a loss for words, and Debi Gliori portrays this beautifully in Night Shift. The cover is gorgeous, and the dragon captivated me straight away whilst it was sitting on our prep trolley. This book is perfect for both those with depression and those without. For those like myself who do struggle with mental illness or times when they've felt down, it is relate-able and a comfort to know you're not alone. For those who haven't experienced depression, Night Shift offers an insight as to what it can be like, helping the reader to understand a bit better how it effects those who do suffer from it.
