Skellig by David Almond

Michael's life is in a mess: his baby sister is in hospital, he's just moved into a new house, and there is something living in the dilapidated garage in the back yard. Is this creature an angel? A human? Or a bit of both? He decides to find out with the help of his new next-door neighbor, Mina. Skellig is both eerie and sweet. Fans of Rodman Philbrick's Freak The Mighty will enjoy this one.
