The doctors said no more could be done and advised Grace's parents to put her away.

On her first day at the Briar Mental Institute, Grace, aged eleven, meets Daniel.

Debonair Daniel, an epileptic who can type with his feet, sees a different Grace: someone to share secrets and canoodle with, someone to fight for.

A deeply affecting, spirit-soaring story of love against the odds.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Henderson allows you to soar with Grace's imagination - The Times book club

'Startlingly assured, poetic and engaging - GRACE WILLIAMS SAYS IT LOUD introduces a new voice, one which I have no doubt we will be hearing much more of; I read it in two sittings, and am already looking forward to her next work.' - Patrick McCabe

'There is tenderness, joy, romance (not to mention inventive sex) and heartbreak. The language is tricksy, the subject disturbing. But this book is energetic, passionate and not easily forgotten.' - Sunday Times

Grace's story from child to adult, told to stunning effect. Beautifully written, funny, sad and unforgettable, a love story like no other, it could be your book of the year. - Choice

'far more inspiring than a hundred feel-good tomes' - Independent, Books of the Year

Mesmerising ... an incredible journey through love, loss, bittersweet triumph and disaster - Sunday Herald

'A quirky and clever debut... this is an honest and witty insight into mental illness.' - Stylist

Grace's romance with Daniel, a "debonair" epileptic, is tender and convincing; the limber, musical prose peppered with brilliant descriptions... - Independent on Sunday

This one of my favourite reads. I just could not put this book down. It is a real page turner. I also gave this book to my mother to read and she could not put this book down either.
