9780007283613: The Double Life of Cassiel Roadnight

Two boys. One identity. He can change his life if he says yes…

An explosive new mystery from the award-winning author Jenny Valentine, The Double Life of Cassiel Roadnight is the story of a boy who assumes the identity of a missing teenager and in-so-doing unearths a series of shattering family secrets – and the truth about who he really is.

With all the classic hallmarks of a Jenny novel – a fantastically strong, sensitive and memorable first person narration; themes of loss and betrayal, family secrets and personal identity; truly quality writing that is 'literary' but never inaccessbile or pretentious, this is the thrilling new novel from the author of Finding Violet Park.

Review:

“Trust and treachery blend into a suspenseful, satisfying story about the choices that we make.” The Times’ Christmas Roundup

"A contemporary thriller so brilliantly written that for two hours I almost forgot to breathe." Amanda Craig, The Times

"An enthralling variation of the 'Who am I' theme." Irish Times

Praise for The Ant Colony:
"[Valentine] has a magical narrative voice that instantly engages, and her tale… is riveting. Valentine writes so beautifully and so convincingly that you're instantly swept into the mystery of these people's lives." Amanda Craig, The Times

"[Valentine] writes with increasing assurance, and The Ant Colony has all the makings of another award-winner… Valentine's observation and language is both unexpected and refreshing," Nicolette Jones, Children's Book of the Week, Sunday Times Culture

"[Bohemia] is a wonderful, three-dimensional character who woos and captivates the reader. Valentine… has produced a story that is both witty and entertaining… it is charmingly written." Daily Telegraph

"This is a fine piece of slice-of-life fiction, warm but not cosy, neatly structured and credible." FT Weekend

"A moving narrative of belonging, love and redemption."
School Librarian

"I think [Valentine] really is getting better and better with everything she writes. The Ant Colony has a very raw emotional honesty about it that is tempered past heartbreak by a vivid imagination and wonderful sense of humour. [It's} completely gorgeous, utterly charming, funny, sweet, sad, and underneath it all, very, very real." TheBookBag.co.uk

About the Author:

Jenny Valentine moved house every two years when she was growing up. She has just moved house again, probably not for the last time. She worked in a wholefood shop in Primrose Hill for fifteen years where she met many extraordinary people and sold more organic loaves than there are words in her first novel, Finding Violet Park, which won the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize in 2007. She has also worked as a teaching assistant and a jewellery maker. She studied English Literature at Goldsmiths College, which almost put her off reading but not quite.
