"Kit's Wilderness" is a book that will make you feel uneasy and a little frightened; it speaks to those fears of getting in with the wrong group and doing things that we are too smart to do. Teenagers will relate to the group pressure of fitting in and appearing cool and unafraid and also to that base emotion of enjoying fear.

When Kit's grandmother dies, Kit and his family move to Stoneygate an old coal-mining town that Kit's family has a history in to take care of his grandfather.

Being the new kid is never easy and Kit hooks up with a group of kids that play a game called "death". It made my skin crawl to think of a group of teenagers in an old mine pit playing a game called death.

Kit is a strong and gifted person and can see ghosts, and Askew is the bad kid Kit has a connection with, for Askew sees the same ghosts, to them the game of death is real and not pretend. Askew is a talented artist, but comes from a rough home and is kicked out of school. Kit has a talent for writing stories and through his stories he is able to help Askew. Askew and Kit have a tumultuous relationship and in the end Kit proves to be the wiser.

Kits wilderness is a fantasy book.The story starts of when Kit Watson moves to stonygate. His ancestors all lived in stonygate too and they all worked in the pit mines. Soon after KIt moves to stonygate he meets a boy called John Askew, he introduces Kit to a dangerous game called death. In this game Kit and other children from the old familys from stonygate have to sit in a circle in a cave and Askew will spin a knife, if the knife land on you than you would go to the middle and experiance death. KIt experiances death but unlike the others he sees the dead children of the past Askew also sees these children, this is because they are both the living dead. The game of death is stoped when one of the school teachers finds out they have been playing it. Everyone blames this on Kit because it was his teacher that stoped the game.
Kits problems increase when his grandad becomes ill he goes into moments when he is completly blank and lost in the past.This is worring for Kits family and they know that he will soon die.
The ghost of the past come to haunt Kit, Askew and Grandpa but one of the ghost seems to be more like a gardian angel to Kit, Askew and grandpa.Silky (gardian angel)comforts Grandpa and kit when they go into there living dead moments.
Kit is the central character in the novel, he's very good and kind but he gets drawn to the darkness, for example John Askew and the death game. Askew is quite a frightening figure like a caveman.He is always out walking in the wilderness and wears black all the time.Allthough Askew is frightening he has server family promlems. in the end kit and Askew stay down in the mines all night and there is a frantic search for them! Are they going to be saved or will they stay down in the mines forever!?! I recomend this book to someone who likes an adventure and a mysterious book!!!!

The story of kit's Wilderness is a fantasy and a adventure for Kit. The story starts off for Kit Watson when he moves to Stoneygate. He becomes friendly with a boy named John Askew. John Askew is the leader of the game called "death" he goes to the game with his friend called Allie. Later in the novel it is Kit's turn to die. Kit does die. His problem increases when kit's granpa becomes ill. He starts having blackouts. Kit is followed to the game by his teacher called "Burning Bush" Kit is awoken when he is dead. John Askew says that this means that Kit will be in a living dead for the rest of hiS life. So in Kit's dream a gohst called Silky comes and huants him. Silky leads Kit into darkness and leaves Kit more and more confused at what is going on around him. John Askw runs away and Kit is the one to bring him back. So in the end they have a Happy Christmas or do they? My favourite charactor in the novel is Kit he is the main charactor in the book because in the book the author is always talking bout him. John Askew seems frightening, almost "caveman" kind of person but his family aren't the best to live with. His dad abuses him so he has a tough time. Granpa lets the past come alive for Kit, he is always telling Kit storys untill he becomes ill.... The books most important themes are about life/death and frienship. The most exciting part of the novel occurs when Kit and Askew learn what it is really like to be friends and what friendship means. David Almond's type of writing is very distinctive because he can always make you feel Kit's feelings and how hw cope's with them. I would recommend this book to people who like exciting and mysterious books, because it is very unique in it's style. So read this book to find and what it is like to be Kit and how to cope with his problems!

Kit's Wilderness is a strange book because it is a bit of a fantacy and an adventure in one. The story starts off when kit moves to stoneygate and he doesn't really know anyone. Then he meets John Askew in school. When John Askew randomly comes up to his with a picture of him sitting by the school fence.
At the end of the book kit and John Askew become really good friends. I don't like the book because it is dull and boring.
