Product description

By the author of The Goldfish Boy, this is funny, it’s sad and it’ll stay in your heart forever. The tale of a boy, and the picture he made in art class, and a white lie that spirals out of control. Cole’s family are struggling to make ends meet. He’s the odd one out at school – always without the latest gadgets and trainers. Until the day a painting he did is spotted, and sold in a posh London gallery for big money. Suddenly, Cole is being hailed as a boy genius. He’s the toast of the art world, the star guest on TV shows and rich beyond his wildest dreams. Cole alone knows that he’s trapped in a huge web of lies. Can he break free? Will he dare to bring it all crashing down?

  • A magical middle-grade mystery by a brilliant rising star
  • Heart, humour, a page-turning plot and a hero you’ll love
  • Ideal for fans of Ross Welford and Frank Cottrell-Boyce
  • Lisa Thompson won huge acclaim for The Goldfish Boy
  • She also wrote The Day I Was Erased and The Light Jar
