9780099488750: The Dead Fathers Club

By the author of Reasons to Stay Alive

Philip Noble is an eleven-year-old in crisis. His pub landlord father has died in a road accident, and his mother is succumbing to the greasy charms of her dead husband's brother, Uncle Alan. The remaining certainties of Philip's life crumble away when his father's ghost appears in the pub and declares Uncle Alan murdered him.

Arming himself with weapons from the school chemistry cupboard, Philip vows to carry out the ghost's relentless demands for revenge. But will Leah, the gorgeous daughter of Uncle Alan's God-fearing business partner, Mr Fairview, prove too much of a distraction? And can the words of a ghost be trusted any more than the lies of the living? Philip makes his decision and when the moment comes to act, he finds himself hurtling towards disaster.

Review:

"Humorous and original. This is one of those crossover books like The Curious Incident of the Dog In The Night-Time" (Carla McKay Daily Mail)

"[T]otally engrossing" (Stephen Daldry)

"[An] elegant little farce" (Glasgow Herald)

"This novel is both funny, surreal and at times full of very black humour: a fine piece of work by a talented and clearly imaginative young writer" (Nick Ryan Express on Sunday)

"The story is so surprising and strange that it vaults into a realm of its own ... One is never sure where the story is going next and that's what makes this book such sad fun" (Gerard Woodward Guardian)

From the Publisher:

A brilliant new novel from the acclaimed author of The Last Family in England
