Publisher's Summary

David Almond's Printz Honor-winning novel celebrates its 10th anniversary! Ten-year-old Michael was looking forward to moving into a new house. But now his baby sister is ill, his parents are frantic, and Doctor Death has come to call. Michael feels helpless. Then he steps into the crumbling garage. What is this thing beneath the spiders' webs and dead flies? A human being, or a strange kind of beast never before seen?
The only person Michael can confide in is his new friend, Mina. Together, they carry the creature out into the light, and Michael's world changes forever...

For Those Looking For a Thoughtful Listen

I quite enjoyed it, it was a mandatory read for a course I was in, but I enjoyed it so much that I couldn't help but also get the Audio book. And the fact that the author readers it made the experience of "re-reading" or listening quite enjoyable.
