The Stone in My Pocket

‘Powerfully evokes all of the emotions you want when you read a good novel.’ – The Independent 

A poignant coming-of-age story following a teenage journey into mediumship, independence, 90s pop culture, and a new millennium. The Stone in My Pocket is an engaging chronicle of adolescence; a tender family drama; and a supernatural mystery, exploring the passage to self-acceptance and how it feels to be different. 

Seventeen year-old Nathan hears a voice crying in his garden at midnight. Later, a ghostly figure stands in his bedroom doorway then vanishes. The crystals he collects on his shelves fall. But Nathan can’t tell his devout parents any of this. They don’t believe his strange stories anymore. Seeking answers, he turns to Iris: the medium who owns the village bookshop. She reads tarot cards and divines that Nathan’s grandfather is communicating with him from the spirit world. And he’s bringing grave warnings for Nathan’s family. 

The novel can be enjoyed by young adults and adults alike.
