Revolver by Marcus Sedgwick

A LOADED GUN. STOLEN GOLD. And a menacing stranger. A taut frontier survivor story, set at the time of the Alaska gold rush.

In an isolated cabin, fourteen-year-old Sig is alone with a corpse: his father, who has fallen through the ice and frozen to death only hours earlier. Then comes a stranger claiming that Sig's father owes him a share of a horde of stolen gold. Sig's only protection is a loaded Colt revolver hidden in the cabin's storeroom. The question is, will Sig use the gun, and why?

Revolver by Marcus Sedgwick is a 2011 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year. This title has Common Core connections.

Great story and plot. Had me guessing to the end. Loved it.

I just love this book. The setting and the interior struggle that the protagonist faces when things go wrong remind me strongly of Jack London's To Build A Fire. Sedgwick's writing is fantastic and I can't understand why he is not better known in the US. I hand sell his books to library patrons and other readers whenever the chance comes up. It might help if BN stocked his books in their bookstores, not just online. ;)
