What if you could save lives? What if, just with the touch of your hand, you could stop an animal, or even a person, dying? You’d do it, wouldn’t you?
The Life and Time of Lonny Quicke is the captivating new middle-grade novel by Kirsty Applebaum, author of The Middler and TrooFriend. Lonny is a lifeling. He has the power to heal any living creature and bring it back from the dead. But he pays a price for this gift – by lengthening the creature’s life, he shortens his own. So, Lonny has to be careful, stay hidden in the forest. Because if people knew what he could do, Lonny would be left with no life at all…
