Linda Newbery brings K.M. Peyton's legendary Flambards series into the present day.
Fourteen-year-old Grace, recovering from a life-changing accident and her parents' divorce, reluctantly spends the summer at Flambards, a remote country house.
Despite herself, she befriends two local boys: Jamie, who is friendly and obsessed with wildlife, and Marcus, who is struggling to deal with his moody, potentially violent father.
In this beautiful but threatened landscape, Grace unearths her own extraordinary ties to the house and - importantly - discovers her own place in the world.
