Release: Signed Edition (Hardback)Patrick Ness (author)
- Click & Collect only
The most personal and tender novel yet from Patrick Ness, the twice Carnegie Medal-winning author of A Monster Calls.
It's Saturday, it's summer and, although he doesn't know it yet, everything in Adam Thorn's life is going to fall apart. But maybe, just maybe, he'll find freedom from the release. Time is running out though, because way across town, a ghost has risen from the lake...This uplifting coming-of-age novel will remind you what it's like to fall in love.Taking his characters – and readers – everywhere from the depths of consciousness to other worlds and further, to worlds beyond death, Patrick Ness is one of the most startlingly original and thought-provoking contemporary writers. His mantelpiece must already be groaning under the weight of his many awards; accolades that include the Carnegie Medal (which he’s won twice), the Costa Children’s Book Award, the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize, the Red House Book Award and the Booktrust Teenage Prize. His novels include the bestselling trilogy Chaos Walking, More Than This, The Rest of Us Just Live Here and The Crane Wife.
