The Riverman brings up a lot of questions: Why am I telling you this? Where do stories come from? What do they mean? When Fiona tells Alistair her deepest secret, will he belive her? And what will he do with the terrible burden it puts on him?
Magical and real at the same time, this is excellent, important, adventurous storytelling, and I think you'll love it!— Meadow
Alistair Cleary is the kid who everyone trusts. Fiona Loomis is not the typical girl next door. Alistair hasn't really thought of her since they were little kids until she shows up at his doorstep with a proposition: she wants him to write her biography. What begins as an odd vanity project gradually turns into a frightening glimpse into the mind of a potentially troubled girl. Fiona says that in her basement, there's a portal that leads to a magical world where a creature called the Riverman is stealing the souls of children. And Fiona's soul could be next. If Fiona really believes what she's saying, Alistair fears she may be crazy. But if it's true, her life could be at risk. In this novel from Aaron Starmer, it's up to Alistair to separate fact from fiction, fantasy from reality.
