Bone Jack

(2014)
A novel by

 

"Dark, magical and mysterious."
Rebecca Stead


A haunting story of magic and myth, of one boy caught between worlds, and of the lengths he will travel to save those he loves.

"Dark, magical, and mysterious, Bone Jack captured me and carried me away." - Rebecca Stead, Newbery Medal-winning author of When You Reach Me and Goodbye Stranger

Times have been tough for Ash lately, and all he wants is for everything to go back to the way it used to be. Back before drought ruined the land and disease killed off the livestock. Before Ash's father went off to war and returned carrying psychological scars. Before his best friend, Mark, started acting strangely.

As Ash trains for his town's annual Stag Chase - a race rooted in violent, ancient lore - he's certain that if he can win and make his father proud, life will return to normal. But the line between reality and illusion is rapidly blurring, and the past has a way of threatening the present.

When a run in the mountains brings Ash face-to-face with Bone Jack - a figure that guards the boundary between the living world and the dead - everything changes once more. As dark energies take root and the world as he knows it is upended, it's up to Ash to restore things to their proper order and literally run for his life.

Praise for Bone Jack:

A 2015 Carnegie Medal nominee
A 2015 Branford Boase Award nominee

"[P]owerful and beguiling." - Telegraph

"A lovely, eerie adventure, balancing the ancient magic with Ash's very real character growth." - Kirkus Reviews
