Grief Angels Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


'Not many YA writers can combine authenticity with such tenderness, so raw at times it's painful.

A unique premise told beautifully' Kiran Millwood Hargrave, author of The Mercies (via Instagram)'A truly extraordinary and original book.

Utterly gobsmackingly brilliant. I felt elated, heartbroken and uplifted by the beauty of it.

Raw and written from the heart, it's a phenomenal read' Liz Hyder, author of Bearmouth'A powerful meditation on grief and friendship' The i newspaper--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------15-year-old Owen Marlow is experiencing a great, disorienting loss after his father suddenly passed away and his mother moved them to a new town.

None of his old friends knew how to confront his grief, so he's given up on trying to make new ones.

There is one guy at school who might prove to be different if he gives him a chance but lately, Owen has been overwhelmed by his sadness.

He's started to have strange, powerful hallucinations of skeletal birds circling above him.

Owen tells himself that these visions are just his brain's way of trying to cope - until one night, the birds descend and take him to an otherworldly forest.

There, he is asked to go on a dangerous journey that promises to bring him the understanding he so desperately seeks - if he can survive it. Grief Angels is an urgent and heartfelt look at the power of nostalgia and the many different forms of grief.

It's about young men learning how to share their stories, and teens discovering who they are, and who they might one day become.
