Some more wonderful book post recently came though my door, the same day actually as the previous book post I showed you from Harper360YA.  This wonderful book comes from Barrington Stoke and it’s one I’ve been particularly interested in reading.  It’s not out until February though, so I have been super lucky to get the chance to read this now!

Swan Song by Gill Lewis – Dylan is struggling. Since he started high school, everything has become too much to handle. Now he’s been expelled and is forced to move to the tiny village in Wales where his grandad lives. But when Grandad invites Dylan out on his boat to watch the Whooper swans return to their winter feeding ground, things begin to change. Grandad doesn’t judge or question; he just lets Dylan be. Out on the water, with no distractions or pressure, Dylan begins to feel like himself again. But when the swans and their home are threatened, and tragedy strikes at home, can Dylan keep going when it feels like everything is slipping out of control again? A profoundly moving novel on the redemptive, healing power of nature from bestseller Gill Lewis.

This sounds like such an interesting novel and the swan in the story and on the cover just made me want to read this all the more.  I can’t wait to share my thoughts on this book, and will do so when I am able to. 😀
