Siobhan Dowd’s Bog Child is today’s featured book of the day.

Fergus and his Uncle Tally are out in the mountains digging for peat.It’s just another ordinary day…until Fergus finds something that chills him to the bone: The body of a young girl buried beneath the bog. It has to be murder.

There is so much going on in Fergus’ world as he attempts to make sense of what happened to the girl in the bog. He also needs to deal with his growing feelings for a girl, the seemingly imminent separation of his parents, and he fate of his brother in prison. It’s a whole lot for one boy to deal with. And, just as voices come to us in our dreams…so do pieces of the bog child’s murder come to Fergus.
