Luke's world is in chaos. His 'mates' want to hurt him, his love-life's a mess, he misses his dad and hates his mum's new boyfriend. He's even lost his passion for piano. When the sound of a child crying starts to haunt him, Luke thinks he's going mad. But the noise soon leads him to an attic room in a creepy house and the strange and secretive people who live there.
Can he resolve the complex mysteries of the house before the bullies close in on him? And will the journey free him from his sadness? Adapted from Carnegie medal-winner Tim Bowler's popular book, Starseeker is a thrilling rites-of-passage tale.
