Shortlisted for the Costa Book Awards 2018

This is a moving, funny and inspirational novel from the bestselling author of Skellig.

The day is long, the world is wide, you're young and free.

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.

This an outstanding novel full of warmth and light, from a multi-award-winning author. David Almond says: "I guess it embodies my constant astonishment at being alive in this beautiful, weird, extraordinary world."

Firstly, thank you to the publisher for my early review copy.

“The Day is Long, The World is Wide, You're Young and Free”

A perfect summer read. The more I’ve thought about it since finishing it, the more it’s grown on me and it will definitely be a book I re-visit.
