This week, I’m sticking with The Runaway. I’m fond of this book for many reasons. For one thing, its premise is build around a fairytale and, recently, my interest in fairies has been piqued again.

Ciarrai is running away from a past that’s still breathing down his neck. Jack has no past, his memory wiped in the accident that killed his parents. They meet and their lives move forward like stones skimming the surface of the water, dipping into memories that want to surface and those that want to lie buried forever.


We skip on another year, and Ciarrai has a plan

Shuffling closer to the cliff’s edge he was absorbed by the nothingness beneath his feet. It would be so easy. One more step. So easy.

He wondered what it would feel like to take that step— to fall and fall and never stop falling. The idea called to the deep hole he could feel inside him. One step and he would become one with it. Smiling, he shook his head and turned away. Yes, it would be easy to jump and turning away from the edge was hard, but he hadn’t spent a year planning escape to have it end on the edge of a cliff in the middle of nowhere.
