An unforgettable standalone novel from Nicky Singer, author of the sensational, award-winning FEATHER BOY.

Twelve-year-old Jess is grieving for her beloved Aunt Edie, and anxiously awaiting the birth of her twin brothers, when she finds a mysterious glass flask hidden in a desk. The flask is beautiful to Jess, and soon she starts to believe that it contains a magical life-force. When her half-brothers are born critically ill, Jess becomes convinced that their survival depends on what's happening to the flask...

Through Jess's stunning narration, Nicky Singer explores the meaning of life, and the interconnected nature of all things - in a way which is entirely accessible to young readers.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for FEATHER BOY:

"...a brilliant debut novel that really does merit the category title of Book You Cannot Put Down."
Ian Hislop, Blue Peter Awards Judge

"Each copy should come with a torch for a spellbinding midnight conclusion."
Telegraph

"Inventive, original and full of surprises, it's the sort of dazzling debut novel that most publishers would fall over themselves to snap up..."
T2

"Feather Boy is the most intelligent book for youngsters I've read for a very long time. Every 12-year-old will see a bit of themselves in Robert and won't be able to put this book down until Feather Boy's emotional, thought-provoking climax. Fabulous."
Funday Times

"This first children's book is a winner."
