From the master storyteller, David Almond...

One hot summer morning, Davie steps boldly out of his front door.

The world he enters is very familiar - the little Tyneside town that has always been his home -

but as the day passes, it becomes ever more mysterious.

A boy has been killed and Davie thinks he might know who is responsible.

He turns away from the gossip and excitement and sets off roaming

towards the sunlit hills above the town.

As the day goes on, the real and the imaginary start to merge,

and Davie knows that neither he nor his world 

will ever be the same again.

An outstanding novel full of warmth and light from a

multi-award-winning author.
