Richly imaginative fantasy novel for young readers aged 12+
“As soon as we saw this book we knew it would be perfect for our 12 to 14-year-old subscribers. Amazing fantasy elements are intertwined with a dark yet moving story about grief, bullying and self-belief.”~Emily
About the book
The real world is a hostile place for twelve-year-old Bren, his schooldays stalked by vicious bully, Shaun, and his family life fractured at home.
Ever since his sister Evie died in an accident, Bren's only safe space is Furthermoor, an imagined world of mechanised trees and clockwork animals, where Evie is still alive.
In Furthermoor, no one can hurt Bren...until the mysterious Featherly arrives.
