Product description

Product Description

When Peter awakes in the head of a girl, he is both delighted and alarmed that his secret yearnings have become reality. Very quickly, however, his error is apparent; this girl is not him. Kaitling –that’s her name– is twelve years old, like him. She’s the daughter of a magician, a prominent figure in another world. Boy and girl travel back and forth from each other’s minds, but have little time to get acquainted before Kaitling’s island is overrun by warrior priests and she has to flee. At home, a conflict erupts in Peter’s family forcing him to take refuge at a friend's place. Meanwhile at school, a haughty new girl goads him about his girlishness and, spitting in his face, vows to rid the earth of people like him. The stage seems set for a desperate struggle to survive, but will ingenuity and youthful fervour be enough against folly and fanaticism?

About the Author

Alan McCluskey lives amid the vineyards in a small Swiss village between three lakes and a range of mountains. Nearby, several thousands of years earlier, lakeside villages housed a thriving Celtic community. The ever-present heart-beat of that world continues to fuel his long-standing fascination for magic and fantasy. Alan McCluskey's work, whether as a teacher or a video artist or a company director or a scientist, was always marked by a need to challenge the self-evident. He has brought that questioning perspective to novel writing alongside a passion for the way gifted young people grow and develop as they are confronted by seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Alan McCluskey has published two YA novels in The Storyteller's Quest series: The Reaches and The Keeper's Daughter. A third book, The Starless Square, is awaiting publication. He has also published Boy & Girl and its sequel In Search of Lost Girls.
