Candy Gourlay's Bone Talk has been shortlisted for the Costa Children's Book Award 2018.
Samkad lives in a tribe deep in the Philippine jungle at the end of the nineteenth century, and has never encountered anyone from outside his own tribe before. He's about to become a man, and while he's desperate to grow up, he's worried that this will take him away from his best Friend, Little Luki.
However, Samkad's world is about to change utterly. A strange man with white skin arrives in his village, and a Samkad discovers the brother he never knew he had. A brother who tells him of people called 'American's. Americans who are bringing war, and burning, to Samuel's home.
This title has been shortlisted for 2019's CILIP Carnegie Medal.
