The Unexpected Future of Alex Nobody (Paperback)

£6.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Have you ever thought what it might be like if you were famous in the future? A brilliant middle-grade adventure for fans of Ross Welford - a story about friendship, courage and embracing our talents even when they make us stand out.



Since she was a baby, strange things have happened to Alex. On the day she was born, hordes of people surrounded the hospital. Complete strangers turn up in droves on her first day of school and watch through the gates. Clapping crowds stand with binoculars to watch her stage debut ... as a camel in the school nativity play.



It's only when a mysterious boy called Jasper appears in her life and gate-crashes her twelfth birthday party that Alex realizes that these people have all been travelling back in time to see her - sometime in the future she becomes famous! But she has no idea why. So when Jasper disappears, Alex herself will have to brave time travel to discover what's happened to him ... and to unravel the secret of her unexpected destiny.

Kate Gilby Smith was born on the sunny island of Guernsey. It was daydreaming during a philosophy of time travel seminar at Edinburgh University that she first had the idea for this story. She now finds new inspiration for stories as a publicist at a London publisher, working on non-fiction titles across science, philosophy and history.
