The Light Jar
I read this to my 10 year old daughter. Wow we couldn't put it down. We thought the book was quite emotional. Always trying to second guess what was going to happen.
The story covers lots of things to talk about. Especially the separation of a family, behaviour between partners and of course imaginary friends.
The story is about a Mum and a Son and how and where they escape to when they leave Mum's partner Gary. Unfortunately Mum disappears after leaving a tumbledown cottage for food. Nate then has a visitor from an old imaginary friend. Nate goes on to meet a girl in the woods. But not is as it seems.
Such a wonderfully written story.
