Blackwells Children’s Book of the Month, March 2022
“The narrative is absorbing, tense and poignant.” BfK 5-star review
“‘Furthermoor’ is Darren Simpson’s best yet: raw, daring and beautiful, in form and content it is a highly immersive, emotive and startling read.” Chris Soul
The real world is a hostile place for twelve-year-old Bren — at school he is stalked by a vicious bully, Shaun, and at home his family life fractured. Ever since his sister Evie died in an accident, Bren’s only safe space is Furthermoor, an imagined world of mechanised trees and clockwork animals, where Evie is still alive. In Furthermoor, no one can hurt Bren… until the mysterious Featherly arrives.
Now Bren is forced to confront his deepest fears and decide if his place in the real world is worth fighting for. Enter a world as vast and dark as your imagination, in this unforgettable coming-of-age story about courage, friendship and finding your voice.
