Sorrowline, Paperback Book
1 out of 5 (1 rating)


Twelve-year-old Jack Morrow is used to life being complicated.

His mother died five years ago, and his father is now headed for prison.

But then Jack discovers he's a Yard Boy - someone with the ability to travel through Sorrowlines, the channels that connect every gravestone with the date of the person's death - and he is quickly pulled into an adventure beyond anything he could have possibly imagined.

Finding himself in 1940s war-torn London, with his then - teenage grandfather, Davey, Jack soon realises that his arrival in the past has not gone unnoticed.

The evil forces of a secret world are determined to find him - and to find out all he knows.

As Jack struggles to survive, he comes ever closer to unlocking the dark secret at the heart of his family, and to - just maybe - changing his own destiny...

Review by

There was nothing particularly terrible about it, just probably too young for me. It didn't grab me, even though the premise seemed quite interesting. Probably just a boy's book.
