Release Date: 7th of May, 2015                Publisher: Walker Books

Conor has the same dream every night, ever since his mother first fell ill, ever since she started the treatments that don’t quite seem to be working. But tonight is different. Tonight, when he wakes, there’s a visitor at his window. It’s ancient, elemental, a force of nature. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor. It wants the truth. 


Here was my initial review on goodreads:

Overall Feelings

Obviously, I didn’t have much to say at the end of this book because I was a puddle of tears. It was so heartbreakingly good I can’t even put it into words. A short read that is quite sinister to begin with and very surreal. I didn’t really know how to take this magical tree element until the ending. This book holds a beautiful metaphor inside and is a definite read to anyone, especially children and teens who are trying to handle grief.
