The Lovereading4Kids comment

In a nutshell: myth, mystery and adventure

Sharon Tregenza’s exciting mystery story opens in very dramatic fashion when a huge sinkhole appears under Griffin’s home. With his mother badly injured and in a coma he goes to stay with his uncle in his strange, crumbling house. It’s a very different way of life to what he’s used to: his uncle and his family enjoy a kind of eco-warrior existence and believe in white magic. Despite initial tensions Griffin becomes friends with his cousin Cinnamon and when the two witness a daring robbery of a priceless but sinister antique from the town’s museum they face very real danger together. Fast-moving, with a great sense of the natural world as well as hints at supernatural beings – good and bad – this is a thoroughly satisfying tale of young people saving the day. ~ Andrea Reece
