Sunday Times Children’s Book of the Week 10 May 2020
A beautifully moving and utterly original love story from Carnegie-shortlisted author Jenny Valentine.
Me? I’m Jude – like the Patron Saint of lost causes.
Him? He’s Novo. Like nothing on earth. Literally.
In the beginning, before Novo showed up, my mum and me moved to the seaside. Then the first of July, 11.34am. Novo arrived. I was like an atom in his orbit. Alone with him, feeling the pull. Suddenly in the moment, in the Now.
Then a terrible, unthinkable Now. One that could tear my family apart. But Nows can be undone, rewritten, changed.
Goodbye to life as I know it.
And Hello Now…
“This extraordinary novel will resonate for anyone who feels trapped in their current circumstances.”
