Overview

A tragi-comic mystery story from best-selling author of the Noughts and Crosses sequence, Malorie Blackman.
     Life is tough for Nova. Her frantic parents are obsessed by running their hotel and her older sister seems too grown-up and good-looking to spend time with her any more. Then Nova meets the gorgeous Liam and things start to look up. But Liam is having an even worse time than she is. He's permanently stuck at the hotel and he can't attract his brother's attention either. At least Liam can see how hard Nova is struggling — and, in fact, she's the only one who can see him at all! Could a new friendship between them help them both see the light at the end of the tunnel? A truly thought-provoking and entertaining black comedy from the very talented author of Pig-Heart Boy and, for older readers, Noughts and Crosses.
