Descrição

A young outcast is swept up into a thrilling and perilous medieval treasure hunt in this literary pause resistor by acclaimed best-selling author Catherine Gilbert Murdock. This epic and engrossing quest story is for fans of Adam Gidwitz's The Inquisitor's Tale and Grace Lin's Where the Mountain Meets the Moon.

Boy has always been relegated to the outskirts of his small village. With a large hump on his back, a mysterious past, and a tendency to talk to animals, he is often mocked and abused by the other young people in his town. Until the arrival of a shadowy pilgrim named Secondus. Impressed with Boy's climbing and jumping abilities, Secondus engages Boy as his servant, pulling him into an expedition across Europe to gather the seven precious relics of Saint Peter.

Boy quickly realizes this journey is not an innocent one. They are stealing the relics and gaining dangerous enemies in the process. But Boy is determined to see this pilgrimage through until the end -for what if St. Peter can make Boy's hump go away?

This compelling, action-packed tale is full of bravery and daring stars a terrific cast of secondary characters and features an unlikely multigenerational friendship at its heart. Memorable and haunting, Catherine Gilbert Murdock's epic medieval adventure is just right for listeners of Sara Pennypacker's Pax, Adam Gidwitz's The Inquisitor's Tale, and Pam Munoz Ryan's Echo.

    This was a good story, not my favorite middle grade but I would say it would be a great family read along.
