About the Author
Claire McFall is a former English teacher whose first book, Ferryman, won the Scottish Children's Book Award and was long-listed for both the Branford Boase Award and the Carnegie Medal. She is also the author of Black Cairn Point (published in the US as The Last Witness), which won the inaugural Scottish Teenage Book Prize. Claire McFall is from Scotland and now lives in Colorado.
Is it possible for the dead to love another? Is it possible for the ferryman to love someone? Is it possible for the dead to return to this world? McFall answers all of these questions in thoughtful, satisfying ways for the reader. . . . A highly recommend novel for teen readers.
--School Library Connection (starred review)

What happens after we die? This atmospheric, romantic Scottish fantasy offers an intriguing answer. . . . Adding touches of mystery and horror as she goes, McFall reimagines Charon of Greek mythology in this gentle, engrossing love story.

McFall's depiction of the protagonists' hunger to be loved, Dylan's awkward self-consciousness about her body, and her burgeoning attraction to Tristan is meticulous, excruciating, and believable. . . . An escapist romance of limitless love across boundaries of life and death.
--School Library Journal

An otherworldly romance.
--Kirkus Reviews

'Ferryman' gives readers ages 12-16 plenty to go on while they wait for the sequels.
