What will two children risk to steal an island? From Costa-winning author of Voyage of the Sparrowhawk.

Natasha Farrant is an exceptional storyteller. Her books are always packed with thrilling adventure, relatable characters and bags of empathy, with a classic feel but plenty of contemporary relevance, and this one is no exception. Highly recommended.


Skylar's old friends felt sorry for her but they were too afraid to talk to her.

Yakov's old friends were far away, blown across continents by war . . .

When Skylar meets Yakov she is still reeling from the news of her grandfather's stroke. Yakov is just desperate to go home. They recognise something in each other: a need for friendship, but something else fizzy beneath the surface. A refusal to accept what life has dealt them; a reckless desire to change things up for the better.

So when there's a competition to own nearby Golden Island, it's no surprise they want it.

But how can two children possibly win an island? And what will they risk to call it their own?

Natasha Farrant is the author of the Costa Award winning novel, Voyage of the Sparrowhawk, bestselling middle-grade novel, The Children of Castle Rock, the acclaimed Bluebell Gadsby series and Carnegie-longlisted and Branford Boase-shortlisted YA historical novel The Things We Did For Love. She was shortlisted for the Queen of Teen Award 2014. She lives in London with her family.
