Golding’s iconic 1954 novel, now with a new foreword by Lois Lowry, remains one of the greatest books ever written for young adults and an unforgettable classic for readers of any age.

This edition includes a new Suggestions for Further Reading by Jennifer Buehler.

At the dawn of the next world war, a plane crashes on an uncharted island, stranding a group of schoolboys. At first, with no adult supervision, their freedom is something to celebrate. This far from civilization they can do anything they want. Anything. But as order collapses, as strange howls echo in the night, as terror begins its reign, the hope of adventure seems as far removed from reality as the hope of being rescued.

The Story

Can you ever escape the past?  Kiran Wells, a thirtysomething professional living on the West Coast, thought he was safe until an anonymous letter arrives from his hometown. Its only contents- an old newspaper clipping about a drowning twenty years earlier. Leaving career and friends behind, Kiran returns to the place of his youth to find the conjurer of his past.

Kiran is a quiet and shy teenager with a taste for alternative music growing up in a suburban northern town during the mid-80’s. The arrival of two students, the confident and rebellious Marius and the naive, cloak-wearing Moony, awaken Kiran.  On the eve of graduation, fate turns the volume off in Kiran’s world and his memory fades to black.

Returning to his hometown, Kiran is forced to confront the demons that haunt him.  His future depends on whatever hope he has left and the life or death decision he must ultimately make. Will he hear the music again?
