The Lovereading4Kids commentFull of mystery and the unknown, this is a futuristic thriller charting the role Crowboy, a boy with special powers can play in helping to diffuse the gang warfare in a troubled city.
Crowboy by David CalcuttThe city will fall, and fall soon. And when it happens - well, I've seen it before, and I don't want to see it again. I shouldn't think Joey does either. So I just hope that whatever he's brought us here for, we can be done with it and away again before the soldiers get in. They don't leave anything standing or anybody living. Mal doesn't know why they're heading into the city. But Joey has decided they must. And Joey, she knows, has a very special power...Inside the city, she's not the only one interested in Joey. Two rival gangs both see the arrival of this strange visionary boy - the Crowboy - as a chance to gain supremacy. But is Joey really so special? As the war tightens its grip on the city, the gangs are forced into a final conflict. It is time for the true purpose of the Crowboy to be revealed.
