"Staff Pick" by ,

Kit's family moves to Stoneygate -- an old coal-mining town where his family has lived for generations -- to be near his ailing grandfather. Here, Kit is invited by an odd neighbor boy to play a game called Death. The game -- and the town's haunted history -- get under Kit's skin... and the lines between reality and fantasy begin to blur. This multi-generational tale is engrossing and chilling.

"Review" by , "A thrilling and spine-tingling ride."
"Review" by , "A heartbreakingly real world fused with magical realism....[The book's] ruminations about death and the healing power of love will strike children in unsuspected ways."
"Review" by , "A whirl of ghosts and dreams, stories-within-stories, joy, heartache, and redemption."
"Review" by , "Kit's Wilderness establishes Almond as the most exciting new voice in children's books of this decade"
