Product description

Nominated for the Carnegie Medal 2019.

A mystery with a supernatural twist by the author of Maggot Moon and I, Coriander. Becky jumped – but never landed. Is she dead? Or did she fly, like Icarus? Nobody wants to go near Jazmin since her best friend Becky jumped. Well, nobody except the man from the newspapers, who keeps following her about. Becky didn’t just jump. She leapt off a tall building – and never reached the ground. Did she vanish into thin air? Is it somehow Jazmin’s fault? Was it to do with Becky’s newfound fame? Or was it about Icarus? Not the flying boy of Greek myth. A beguiling, sinister figure who claims to be an alien, living here on Earth to learn about love…

  • A brilliantly enigmatic blend of realism and sci-fi
  • Illustrated with beautiful and intriguing line drawings
  • Sally Gardner won the Carnegie Medal for Maggot Moon
  • She also won the Nestle Gold Award for I, Coriander

“It is heart-breaking, terrifying, uplifting, thought-provoking and beautifully constructed. Its secrets are revealed very gradually, as multiple narrators help to join together the pieces of a complex puzzle – and the story will haunt you long after the last page is finished.” Booktrust

*Please note this book contains mature content and language more suitable for older readers.
