Brand New Book, Good Condition, Dispatched from our warehouse in the UK

From School Library Journal&newline;&newline;Grade 8 Up–Paris is a 14-year-old neglected rich girl whose uncle takes her on a hunting expedition in the Himalayas. Much admired by his cocky niece, Franklin is an influential, mysterious man. As his friends arrive at the base camp, the group's sinister purpose begins to emerge. They intend to hunt and eat endangered species, and the height of their pleasure will be to kill the last animal of a kind, eating it into extinction. Meanwhile, 12-year-old monk-in-training Tahr, traveling with the elderly monk who raised him, glimpses a strange face in the forest just as the older man dies in an accident. Desperate, Tahr stumbles into the hunting camp. He and Paris begin to develop something of a friendship, but when he tells her about the creature he saw, she tells the adults. This leads to the horrific capture of an adolescent yeti, who turns out to be a Neanderthal human, possibly the last of her kind. When the yeti begins to communicate psychically with the youngsters, Paris begins to see the horror around her and changes loyalties. There are some scenes of graphic violence when the hunters come up against warring local factions. The story is intense, disturbing, and eventually riveting, in spite of some less-than-convincing characters and plot contrivances. Full of ethical and political overtones, the book will prompt discussion and controversy. While it doesn't measure up to Eva (Delacorte, 1989), it's a good choice for fans of the Peter Dickinson classic.–Susan Oliver, Tampa-Hillsborough Public Library System, FL &newline;Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.&newline;--This text refers to the &newline;&newline;Hardcover&newline;edition. &newline;&newline;Book Description&newline;&newline;Paris is on a trek in the Himalayas with her uncle and her uncle's friends. On the way they come across a young Tibetan monk, Tahr, who reluctantly joins their party as his protector has died in an accident. As the trek progresses, Paris realizes the true reason for the journey - her uncle and his friends are a strange, gourmet dining club, dedicated to hunting down and eating the rarest possible animals. So when they discover a young yeti-like creature, who is very nearly human herself, Tahr convinces Paris that they have a duty to protect her, come what may. BLPhilip Gross is a well-known poet for both adults and children, and has been shortlisted for the Whitbread Poetry Award
