In this compelling story of teenage rivalry and friendship, award-winning author Keith Gray captures the subtle agonies and reality of life growing up in a small town.Sully is the best climber in the village. He can scale the Twisted Sister’s tangled branches and clamber up Double Trunker with ease. But when new kid Nottingham shows up and astonishes everyone with his climbing skills, Sully’s status is under threat and there’s only one way to prove who’s best. Sully and Nottingham must race to climb the last unnamed tree. Whoever makes it to the top will become a legend. But something spiteful and ugly has reared its head in Sully … Is it worth losing everything just to reach the top?
As a child Keith Gray found reading a chore, and credits Robert Westall’s ‘The Machine Gunners’ with awakening his love of reading and, later, writing. His debut, ‘Creepers’, was published when he was only 24 and was shortlisted for the Guardian Fiction Prize. Since then his books have either won or been shortlisted for awards all over the world. In the UK his bestselling novel ‘Ostrich Boys’ was shortlisted for the prestigious CILIP Carnegie Medal and the Costa Children’s Book Award.
