Summary

A young boy with a mysterious illness is sent to an institution where only children are present but which is governed by strict rules and the presence of the absent Headmaster and Doctor.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children meets Lord of the Flies in the exciting debut from Angharad Walker.
A new boy arrives at the Ash House. He can't remember his name - or why he's been sent there. Given the name Sol, and troubled by a mystery pain that no medicine can cure, he joins the gang of children living in the shadows of the secretive house. Soon, however, there's more for him to face: the darkness that descends with the arrival of the Doctor...

NOTE : The children are of mixed ages, and although targeted at the 10+ market there is some challenging content and includes scenes bordering on mental and physical cruelty plus a lot of violence, so you may prefer to shelve in teen collections.
NOTE : There is spot-foiling on the front cover and spine.

Book of the week

Surreal and disturbing in a Kafka-esque way, but skilful writing results in a gripping, compelling read to which you may not feel you get all the answers but which stays with you long after the last page. Would keep book groups debating for hours! A remarkable debut

Content advisory

The children are of mixed ages, and although targeted at the 10-plus market there is some challenging content and includes scenes bordering on mental and physical cruelty plus a lot of violence, so you may prefer to shelve in teen collections.
