Longlisted for the 2015 Carnegie Medal.
Red asks, 'Will we always be together?'
'Always,' I say. 'Just you and me in that little boat, watching the scarlet ibis flying back to the Caroni Swamp.'
Scarlet's used to looking after her brother, Red. He's special - different. Every night she tells him his favourite story - about the day they'll fly far away to the Caroni Swamp in Trinidad, where thousands of birds fill the sky.
But when Scarlet and Red are split up and sent to live with different foster families, Scarlet knows she's got to do whatever it takes to get her brother back . . .
A wonderfully moving new novel from the author of Sky Hawk and White Dolphin.

This is a lyrical, emotive, engrossing adventure. (Sunday Times, Nicolette Jones)
A beautifully-told, nail-biting tale, that will inspire and empower anyone who reads it. (Kate Humble)
I absolutely loved this beautiful tale of friendship and hope. There's obvious appeal for fans of Lauren St John and Michael Morpurgo, and she's most definitely a writer to watch. (Bookseller)
I read the book in more or less a single sitting, then at the end I skipped back to read the best bits again. There aren't many novels you can say that about. (Lorna Bradbury, The Telegraph)
I absolutely loved this: a deeply moving account of two siblings sent to live with foster families...A powerful and emotional story. (Fiona Noble, The Bookseller)
Lewis makes you feel as though you are there with Scarlet and Red fighting their fights and feeling their pain. (Charlotte Seager, The Guardian)
How far would you go to protect someone you love?
