29-06-2013
As a kid, Jacob bonded with his granddad over his weird tales and his snapshots of levitating girls and invisible boys. Now at 16, he's trying to get over the shock of the old man's sudden demise. Then Jacob receives a strange letter that propels him on a journey to a secluded Welsh island, his grandad's birthplace. There, he finds the children from the pictures--alive and well--despite the islanders’ assertion that they were killed decades before. As the mystery unravels, he suspects he is being trailed by a monster only he can see. A haunting and unique read, this will absorb readers and draw them into each deftly woven thread of the unforgettable whole. Interspersed with haunting photos, this is a mood novel with plot twists, turns, and jerks that will grab readers across age spans.
