9780007438785: The Flask

An unforgettable standalone novel from Nicky Singer, author of the sensational, award-winning FEATHER BOY.

Twelve-year-old Jess is grieving for her beloved Aunt Edie, and anxiously awaiting the birth of her twin brothers, when she finds a mysterious glass flask hidden in a desk. The flask is beautiful to Jess, and soon she starts to believe that it contains a magical life-force. When her half-brothers are born critically ill, Jess becomes convinced that their survival depends on what’s happening to the flask…

Through Jess's stunning narration, Nicky Singer explores the meaning of life, and the interconnected nature of all things - in a way which is entirely accessible to young readers.

Review:

Praise for FEATHER BOY:

“…a brilliant debut novel that really does merit the category title of Book You Cannot Put Down.”
Ian Hislop, Blue Peter Awards Judge

“Each copy should come with a torch for a spellbinding midnight conclusion.”
Telegraph

“Inventive, original and full of surprises, it’s the sort of dazzling debut novel that most publishers would fall over themselves to snap up…”
T2

“Feather Boy is the most intelligent book for youngsters I’ve read for a very long time. Every 12-year-old will see a bit of themselves in Robert and won’t be able to put this book down until Feather Boy’s emotional, thought-provoking climax. Fabulous.”
Funday Times

“This first children’s book is a winner.”
Publishing News

About the Author:

Nicky has written four novels for adults, two books of non-fiction and six works for young people. Her first children’s novel Feather Boy has been published in 28 countries. It won the Blue Peter ‘Book of the Year’ Award, was adapted for TV (winning a BAFTA for Best Children’s Drama) and then commissioned by the National Theatre as a musical with lyrics by Don Black and music by Debbie Wiseman. In 2010 Nicky was asked by Glyndebourne to adapt her novel Knight Crew (a re-telling of the King Arthur legend set in contemporary gangland) for an opera and was filmed by the BBC for a three-part documentary series presented by Gareth Malone. She is currently at work on Island, a play about ice-bears and moral responsibility for the National Theatre’s Primary 1 series.
