Skellig by David Almond
"Well, that was excellent.

This book is a brief mouthful of myth and hope and atmosphere. Reasons to read it?

“But when you find your soul, you have to go. When you find your true shape, when the wind lifts you up, when you remember who you are, you have to go.”
Katherine Catmull, Summer and Bird

“The bird music sank into her, like a song you used to know but forgot long ago. You hear a piano play it some day, and for a minute you feel a happy pain, but you don't know why. Bird felt like that.”
