Review

"Powerful, challenging reading for older teens" (Sunday Mirror)

"Compelling . . . Elegiac, even literary" (David Self TES)

"Celevrly intertwines two stories and encompasses some big themes . . . Intelligent and perceptive" (Guardian)

"A novel to read, think about, and then read again" (Independent)

"[An] enjoyably meaty read . . . Newbery writes wonderfully" (Financial Times)

Synopsis

The Shell House is a beautifully written and sensitive portrayal of love, sexuality and spirituality over two generations. Greg's casual interest in the history of a ruined mansion becomes more personal as he slowly discovers the tragic events that overwhelmed its last inhabitants. Set against a background of the modern day and the First World War, Greg's contemporary beliefs become intertwined with those of Edmund, a foot soldier whose confusion about his sexuality and identity mirrors Greg's own feelings of insecurity. This is a complex and thought-provoking book, written with elegance and subtlety. It will change the way you think.
