Suddenly, every moment is fizzing with what-if's, and it's up to David to outwit fate. Or try to. He changes his name and the way he looks. He leaves home and finds himself caught up in a series of strange and extraordinary adventures. He even falls in love.But is David really in control of his life? And if he isn't - who is?'Unusual and engrossing' - Independent'Outstanding' - The Times'Intelligent, ironic and darkly funny' - Sunday TimesBestselling author Meg Rosoff has received great critical acclaim since the publication of her first novel How I Live Now (winner of the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize).
