“I loved the plot line as it did not skip anything making the reader see through the characters’ feelings. I think this book should win because of its ability to communicate emotion.” Thomas. Based on a real life story from St Kilda, a small Scottish island.
The story opens with “His mother gave him a new pair of socks, a puffin to eat and a kiss on the cheek.”
