Skellig by David Almond

Michael has just moved to a new house with a garage full of junk.  On his new street is a home-schooled girl named Mina who knows much more than he does.  In his garage is a creature called Skellig, who asks for Chinese food and painkillers, and might just have wings.  Meanwhile, Michael's baby sister is sick.

It's nowhere near as good as Kit's Wilderness by the same author, but it's still a decent book.  Skellig seems too short, as if it could easily encompass twice as many pages.  The plot has a bit of a rushed feeling, especially near the end.
