A new and unique YA fantasy series that is incredibly well written and spellbinding.
Jacob, an American teenager, has only just stopped believing the fantastical stories his Grandpa Portman used to tell him about World War II – a lovely, sunny mansion in Wales, invisible boys, floating girls, and a bird who liked to smoke a pipe watching over them all. It isn’t until tragedy strikes the Portman family that Jacob finds out the truth about his grandfather and himself.
The book is loaded with a dreamy, eerie sort of mystery – aided by real photographs brought together by the author through various peculiar photograph collectors. Even beyond the photographs, the details and beautiful storytelling make this book truly come to life.
