LoveReading View on The Boy Who Drew the Future

Tense, and creepy, there are real thrills in this absorbing story. Noah has a strange and unsettling talent – gift or curse? – his drawings portray events that have not yet happened, but will. It’s a talent he needs to keep hidden. Moving to a new place to start a new life gives him the chance to reinvent himself, particularly when he makes friends with a girl, Beth, but the past seems to haunt him. Indeed, Noah’s story seems bound up with that of a boy who lived over one hundred and fifty years ago, whose talent for seeing the future had him branded a witch. We want things to work for Noah, but there’s a very real sense that they might not and Rhian Ivory maintains the tension until the very end.  ~ Andrea Reece

The Boy Who Drew the Future Synopsis

Fifteen-year-old Blaze and Noah live in the same village, Sible Hedingham, more than 100 years apart. They both have the same gift or curse - they find they must draw pictures that later come true. In the 1860s Blaze is bullied, cheated and accused of being a witch and 'swam'. In the present day, Noah is used to everyone, even his parents, being afraid of him and is desperate to keep his drawing a secret. But as he gets closer to Beth, he must decide whether or not he can tell her the truth. Can Blaze's history help Noah and Beth work out their own story? Can the future be changed?
