‘The Silent Invasion’ tops YA bestsellers chart

It’s followed by In the Dark Spaces, a ‘genre-smashing hostage drama’ from debut novelist Cally Black; Gap Year in Ghost Town, a ‘smart, funny and scary’ ghost-hunting adventure from prolific spec-fiction author Michael Pryor; Akarnae, the first book in Lynette Noni’s ‘Medoran Chronicles’ fantasy series; and Take Three Girls, a story about female friendship by three award-winning YA authors.
