A young boy named Sky is just a normal fifteen-year-old except for the fact that he moves around England a lot and can't stay with his old friends. Where he's at now it's hard for him to make friends, because, well, he's the new kid in school.

Since moving to his new home Sky has been having weird problems with sleeping at night. He finds himself on the floor when he wakes up in the morning and his parents think that he's sleepwalking. But when they take him to the doctor there seems to be nothing wrong with Sky.

One day his mother tells him to come and check out this sea chest with her. She said it was his grandfather's before he died. She never really talked about him that much but she had her moments. Although he didn't get a chance to open the sea chest with his mother, he found his chance that night. Sky was looking through it but didn't find anything interesting until he was just about to leave. Sky felt something in the top of the chest, as if there was something hidden there. He let his curiosity go too far, cutting open the top of the chest. There he found a bag of stones (which turn out to be rune stones) and a journal with writing he couldn't understand. He didn't want to tell his mother that he had opened the chest and then just cut the whole top part of it off.

It is two weeks before spring break, and his cousin, Kristin, is coming home from her boarding school in Norway to visit. Since she's been away she is a totally different person. When they were younger the two used to go out in the woods and play lots of fun games, but now she is always on her cell phone talking to her friends about girly stuff. When they used to hang out before they had just one rule: When one of them falls the other always comes back to help. But will it stay that way now?

Now they're facing the challenge of figuring out the mystery of their grandfather together. You'll just have to read the book to figure out the rest, but it's a great ride!

I would recommend this book to people who want to read a paranormal fantasy adventure. I certainly enjoyed reading THE FETCH, and I bet you will, too!
