The bestselling modern fairytale, with a new introduction from Luke Cutforth

‘I loved it … so good!’ CARRIE HOPE FLETCHER

Arthur Braxton has had enough. His mum has left, his dad is broken and he’s the laughing stock of his high school.

But things are about to change. When Arthur runs away and shelters in an old abandoned bathhouse, he sees a naked woman swimming in the pool. From this point on, his sad little life will never be the same.
