Product description

Why is Nate hiding in a forest – alone, frightened and friendless? Is there a light in this darkness? A magical, mysterious tale by the author of The Goldfish Boy. One to break your heart/dampen your tissues over and over again! Nate and his mum are on the run. They’ve found a hideout: a tumbledown cottage in a tangled forest. When Mum heads off for provisions and doesn’t come back, Nate is left all alone – except for The Fear. The dark. The loneliness. The forest. The monsters. (They aren’t real, are they?) And what about the strange girl who is following clues to a treasure hunt? She might shine a light into Nate’s past – if Nate dares to look…

  • A gripping, atmospheric mystery full of heart and hope
  • By the hugely acclaimed author of The Goldfish Boy
  • Resonant themes of friendship, fear and self-discovery
  • The Goldfish Boy was a Waterstones Book of the Month
