The Humming Room by Ellen Potter
The Humming Room was an entertaining story inspired by The Secret Garden about a girl who leaves her unstable home to live with her uncle, a man she never met. Finding her way through the island Roo meets and befriends Jack, the boy who lives on the river. She finds a beautiful garden filled with exotic plants and brings it back to life.
I would recommend the story to a younger audience, but only to those that haven't read The Secret Garden. I found that the idea had become tiring for me, having read the original.
