Product description

Shortlisted for the 2018 Carnegie Medal.

What is home? The mainland Crow’s never seen? Or the family she’s never met, who cast her adrift as a baby? A castaway. An island. A 21st century Robinson Crusoe, to make you ask where YOU really belong. Many stories start with a castaway washed up on an island, dreaming of home. But Crow has no idea where ‘home’ really is. Set adrift in a boat when she was just a few hours old, she’s never left the starkly beautiful island where she was washed up. Raised by Osh, the painter who found her and saved her, Crow has always wondered about the world beyond. Who are her real family? Why do some of the islanders fear her? And what is that eerie fire across the water, calling out to her?

  • By the Newbery Honor winning author of Wolf Hollow
  • A deeply emotional tale of self-discovery and belonging
  • Set on a remote Massachusetts island during the 1920s
  • “Vivid and heart-wrenching” – Goodreads
