The Book That Made Me: Philip Reeve 16/10/19
Publisher: Floris Books
Kirby Sampson has never really thought of himself as being particularly brave; he's just a normal 12-year-old boy living by the sea in Craghaven. But his life is turned upside down after a terrible and violent storm hits his hometown, leaving his mum fighting for her life. And then Kirby is visited by a friendly yet mysterious girl called Amelia Pigeon, who warns him that he is in grave danger.
An ancient evil is stalking Craghaven and Amelia – who's definitely not a normal 12-year-old girl – needs Kirby's help to stop it. Together, they embark on an adventure battling sinister forces through sea-caves, midnight woods, a haunted house, and more, and Kirby discovers the courage he never knew he had.
This is a brilliant page-turner from Blue Peter Book Award winner Ross MacKenzie. It twists and turns between darkness and light, and is full of suspense, mystery and intrigue. Perfect for anyone who's looking for a story with edge-of-the-seat action and that will send a shiver down the spine.
