“The search for his grandfather's past leads Jake to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where a home for orphaned and 'peculiar' children once stood. Jake's grandfather's stories -- about invisible children, children who can command fire, children with enormous strength, and the monsters who hunt them -- can't possibly be true, but Jake's search of the island proves otherwise. This well-wrought story has just the right amount of suspense, scare-your-pants-off detail, and smart, compassionate children searching for a path forward in a twisted, topsy-turvy world.”
— Connie Brooks, Battenkill Books, Cambridge, NY

Staff Reviews


When I was a kid, while other little girls idolized Belle and Jasmine, I always felt a bit left out. I wanted to be like Wednesday Addams, and even once dressed as her for Halloween. This book would have made me feel right at home. Fun, spooky, strange, and adventurous, this is a great book for those who don't mind embracing their dark side.

— Amanda
