Waterstones Says

The fourth instalment in his quartet of novellas, McGowan's Lark is a spellbinding tale of two brothers caught in a blizzard on the North Yorkshire Moors. Told in a fresh, invigorating voice and filled with characters who are charming, scruffy and gloriously real, Lark is a raw, tender and cogent story that reminds us of the power of nature, and the solace and perils it can deal us.

Winner of the CILIP Carnegie Medal 2020

Things are tense at home for Nicky and Kenny. Their mum's coming to visit and it will be the first time they've seen her in years. A lot has changed since they were little and Nicky's not so sure he's ready to see her again. When they head for a trek across the moors to take their minds off everything, a series of unforeseen circumstances leaves the brothers in a vulnerable and very dangerous position. There might even be a chance that this time not everyone will make it home alive...

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant, or dyslexic readers aged 13+.

“Gritty, authentic, hilarious”

I’m new to Anthony McGowan, so I’ve just read the quartet of Brock, Pike, Rook and Lark in succession. Wow. It was such a distinctive, refreshing voice that came through, but also very familiar, reminding me of some... More
