Starseeker

Starseeker Synopsis

Luke is in trouble. Skin and the gang have a job for him. They want him to break into Mrs Little's house and steal the jewellery box. They want him to prove that he's got what it takes. That he's part of the gang. But Luke finds more than just a jewellery box in the house. He finds something so unexpected it will change his life forever . . . This is a wonderful, rich novel, written with lyricism, drama and power. Tackling issues of loss, love, and healing, and filled with the sense of a universe bursting with music, it is unputdownable from the first page to the last.

Starseeker Press Reviews

An intensely moving and powerful story. * The Mail on Sunday * Compelling and suspenseful * The Sunday Times * A hard one to put down . . . one of the truly individual voices in British teenage fiction. * The Independent * A memorable book. * David Almond * Lyrical and emotionally charged - on full throttle * The Observer * It's very rare to find a book that moves the heart, touches the spirit and yet remains so well grounded in everyday life. It'll stick to your fingers, this one - don't miss it. * Melvyn Burgess *
