Kit doesn’t understand why his family has been uprooted to a remote coastal village in the North. Why did they leave so suddenly, and why has his Dad not joined them? At Askfeld Farm Guesthouse, he meets an eclectic group of new neighbours and forms an unlikely friendship with Beth, who suffers from a chronic illness he does not understand. Kit learns that Beth, who cannot leave the guesthouse, is trying to draw a map from memory that shows all her favourite childhood haunts.

Kit makes it his quest to help her remember by visiting places for her and hopes to solve the problems of the other guests along the way. But becoming a hero like the ones in his favourite books is trickier than it seems. Can Kit work out that the person who really needs his help is much closer to home?

Reviews for A Map of the Sky

'A brilliant and sensitively written portrayal of the adult world through the eyes of a curious, loveable eleven-year-old boy. This book tackles adult issues but without the overanalysis that comes with adulthood. Very enjoyable.' Polly Courtney, novelist and screenwriter
'A lovely story of trying to understand the big wide world through a child's eyes. A Map of the Sky is so well written it made me feel young again! It captures the beauty and drama of the North Yorkshire coast as though you are there, allowing you to escape the hurry of modern life. Highly recommended.' CL Smith, author of the Kadogos trilogy
