A triumph - set to wonder and beguile its readers. - THE GUARDIANI'm calling it now: The Ghosts of Heaven is the book of the year for me. - THE BOOKBAGAn intelligent, ambitious and hugely satisfying novel showing that there's no need to stick with simple for young adult fiction. - Anna James, WE LOVE THIS BOOKMarcus Sedgwick's superb new novel, The Ghosts of Heaven, is a real leap of imagination. The four stories in themselves are engrossing and fluently written but what makes this book something special is that, as a whole, it is also a beguiling and philosophical account of human longing and the unknown. A triumph. - Martin Chilton, THE TELEGRAPH
