Product description

Winner of the Carnegie Medal.

Deep and powerful: a moving, magical voyage through life, death and memory. ‘You are not the same person at the end of this book’ is what the Carnegie judges said. Grandpa is dying. He can barely move his hands any more but, stubborn as ever, refuses to stay in hospital. He’s determined to finish his last painting, ‘River Boy’, before he dies. At first Jess can’t understand his refusal to let go, but then she too becomes involved in the mysterious painting. And when she meets the River Boy himself, she is caught up in a challenge of her own: a task that she must complete – before it’s too late.

“River Boy has all the hallmarks of a classic … You are not the same person at the end of this book.” Carnegie Medal Judges

“The book is indeed a stunner – powerful, magical, unforgettable, a young classic of a book enjoying the first couple of years of what could and should be immortality.” Evening Echo

“A fine winner of this year’s Carnegie Medal – haunting, poetic and written with great feeling.” The Mail on Sunday

Supplied as a pack of six copies.
