    Bridge of Clay
    From the author of the no.1 New York Times bestselling novel The Book Thief.

    Let me tell you about our brother.
    The fourth Dunbar boy named Clay.
    Everything happened to him.
    We were all of us changed through him.

    The Dunbar boys bring each other up in a house run by their own rules. A family of ramshackle tragedy - their mother is dead, their father has fled - they love and fight and learn to
    reckon with the adult world.

    It is Clay who will build a bridge - for his family, for his past, for greatness, for his sins. He's building a bridge to transcend humanness. To survive.

    A miracle and nothing less.
