The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is a gripping supernatural thriller and one of those rare books that makes the reader want to put life on hold for as long as it takes to finish it. The writing is breathtakingly good and whilst tackling some serious issues it also delivers a storyline that is superb. Meet Solomon, a boy who is bullied who finds solace in the local graveyard, but when an evil spirit threatens a young girl he must confront his demons in order to try and save her.
Whispers in the Graveyard by Theresa Breslin
'They want me to join them. All I have to do is to reach out to them ...' Solomon struggles in school. He is bullied by his teachers and let down by his parents. His only refuge is in the local kirkyard, among ancient graves that lie in the shadow of the rowan tree. But when workmen uproot the tree and a dark and terrifying power is unleashed. Will Solomon be able to save himself and the people he cares about from the terrible curse within? Whispers in the Graveyard won the Carnegie Medal and has been adapted as a play. This edition features a new cover by illustrator Thomas Flintham.
The Telegraph said 'Essential reading';
The Guardian 'Totally convincing... Gripping to the last';
The Times 'breathtaking';
The Daily Telegraph 'a terrific read';
Books for Keeps 'quality etched right through';
The Independent 'one of those rare books that makes you want to put your life on hold for as long as it takes to finish it... Formidably good writing, full of wit and wisdom, from which children will go away encouraged rather than demoralised at the possibilities of the human condition.'
