Kit's Wilderness by David Almond


Kit's Wilderness by David Almond
Genre: Supernatural
Published: 1999
Hardback: 229 pages
Rating: 4
Inspiration: Page Flipper's Top Teen Book list post and Persnickety Snark's Operation Retirement Rescue

Description from book:
Thirteen-year-old Kit goes to live with his grandfather in the decaying coal mining town of Stoneygate, England, and finds both the old man and the town haunted by ghosts of the past.

My thoughts:
In-a-word: Ammonite
This is a gem of a story. I like how the past and the present links with each other and how it goes as far back as cave men times. There are also friendships that form and bloom.
