The Lovereading4Kids comment
Heaven Eyes is yet another outstanding novel from an outstanding author. The characters are beautifully drawn. Full of passion, at times very sad but always pulling you to turn the page, it will bring tears to your eyes unless you're a serious hard nut.
Heaven Eyes by David Almond
Erin, January and Mouse live in a children's home, Whitegates. They often dream of escape, and frequently journey into the outside world. Running away is something they know all about. But this time January builds a raft, and the three of them head precariously down river. Towards the Black Middens. This time they might never come back.
"David Almond understands the joy and fear of being alive better than most - Heaven Eyes is a mysterious gift of a novel." - THE TIMES
"Both original and unnerving, this really is a fantastic book." - THE BOOKSELLER
"Transfixing - just the novel to usher in the new millennium!" - THE LITERARY REVIEW
"Almond's powerfully original talent has won him the Whitbread and the Carnegie, and really could - or anyway should - win him the Booker." - BOL.COM
"Almond's story is a beautiful, eerie tale in which the living and the dead find comfort in each other... Like Almond's brilliant Skellig, this is a book about love and faith - particularly faith in yourself and others." - THE GUARDIAN
