Owen Smith is worried about his dad. It's been a year since they lost Owen's mum, and Owen can see that his dad isn't coping with the grief that has engulfed them both. But Owen's dad is a writer, so when Owen suggests beginning another novel, he hopes it will help him.
Then, something crazy happens. Owen wakes up in a strange world beyond his own, where a raging storm called the Darkness threatens to obliterate everyone and everything in its path.
And soon Owen realises the startling truth: he is inside his dad's story. And as the main character, only he can help his dad battle the storm and reach the end of the book...
A page-turning action-adventure full of emotional heart, STORMWALKER is a must-read for young readers.
