I pulled the letter out of my pocket and looked at Grandpa’s writing. … I should give it to Mum — it was hers after all. …But how could I? I’d have to admit going down into the cellar. … Now that I’d come this far, I’d have to read what he’d said.
I stood in the moonlight and began.
A forbidden foray into an old cellar leads Ish to unearth a startling discovery. When he opens his late Grandpa’s undelivered letter to Mum, Ish is sucked into a vortex of secrets and lies – and one unexpected truth.
Now he must live with the consequences.
A story about a boy who writes poetry to make sense of his world – and learns that in the face of loss, treachery and deceit, love is what matters.
