Overview

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.

Author

Nicky has written four novels for adults, two books of non-fiction and six works for young people. Her first children's novel Feather Boy has been published in 28 countries. It won the Blue Peter `Book of the Year' Award, was adapted for TV (winning a BAFTA for Best Children's Drama) and then commissioned by the National Theatre as a musical with lyrics by Don Black and music by Debbie Wiseman. In 2010 Nicky was asked by Glyndebourne to adapt her novel Knight Crew (a re-telling of the King Arthur legend set in contemporary gangland) for an opera and was filmed by the BBC for a three-part documentary series presented by Gareth Malone. She is currently at work on Island, a play about ice-bears and moral responsibility for the National Theatre's Primary 1 series.
