The Lovereading4Kids comment

Joel’s journey of discovery about himself and the small town in which he lives is beautifully observed. Henning Mankell gets right inside the head of his sensitive twelve year old hero who, after surviving a car accident, feels he must show some kind of gratitude but to whom and how?

If you enjoyed this then make sure you read Mankell's other titles, including Bridge to the Stars, When the Snow Fell, and Journey to the End of the World.

Synopsis

Shadows In The Twilight by Henning Mankell

Joel will soon be twelve, and he thinks nothing's going on in the small community where he lives. But he's wrong there. One day, a Miracle happens to him. He's very nearly run over by a bus, but is miraculously unhurt. Now, what do you do when a Miracle has come your way? Shouldn't you show gratitude somehow? But how?
