Advent by Krishan Coupland

 

Ten-year-old Luke has always idolised his mother. She is strong and defiant and unafraid. She never lies to him, even about the things that matter. She couldn’t be more different from his soft and doting foster family.

When his mother arrives unexpectedly at his bedroom window one winter night, Luke doesn’t hesitate. He joins her, and together they run away on what he hopes will be the adventure of a lifetime.

Note: Advent contains some harsh language.
