Jackdaw Summer

by David Almond
£6.99   paperback  Hachette Children (2009)

Jackdaw Summer by David Almond By the author of Skellig, winner of the Carnegie Medal and the Whitbread Children's Book Award.
 
A long hot summer.
A wild boy.
An abandoned baby.
An act of violence.
 
Every summer Liam and Max roam the wild countryside of Northumberland - but this year things are different. One hot summer's day a jackdaw leads the two boys into an ancient farm house where they find a baby, wrapped in a blanket, with a scribbled note pinned to it: PLESE LOOK AFTER HER RITE. THIS IS A CHILDE OF GOD. And so begins Jackdaw Summer. A summer when friendships are tested. A summer when lines between good and bad are blurred. A summer that Liam will never forget...

"One of the best novels published in the last decade."
