Gravespeakers: Jack

Gravespeakers: Jack

Six children discover on their twelfth birthday they have a special gift – they can communicate with the dead! Gravespeakers:Jack tells the story of the fourth of the children, Jack McCarthy from Killorglin in Country Kerry. Born with tetra-Amelia syndrome, a rare disorder affecting less than a dozen people worldwide, leaving him in a wheelchair, Jack refuses to let it get him down. But when Jack’s father leaves and then is tragically killed, his resolve is tested to the limit, especially when his house is demolished under instructions from an unscrupulous county council leader. And when Jack is offered the chance to walk and run and skip and dance for a full month by Laertes, a supernatural visitor in return for abandoning his chance to be one of the six, the temptation is strong. The pressure intensifies when Laertes helps Jack to dance for the first time in his life with his newly-found soulmate, Drooz Rammen. Will Jack succumb or will he resist and fulfil his destiny? Gravespeakers:Jack is the fourth book in the series and is inspired by the real-life story of Joanne O’ Riordan from Cork. Joanne is one of a handful of people worldwide with tetra-amelia syndrome.
