Excluded from school, Dylan is forced to move to a tiny village in Wales where his grandad lives.

With no Xbox or internet, life is looking pretty bleak, but when Grandad takes Dylan out on his boat to see the whooper swans, things begin to change.

Out on the water, free from all the pressure he's been under, Dylan begins to feel like himself again. But when the swans' habitat is threatened and tragedy strikes at home, can Dylan keep going when it feels like everything is slipping out of control again?

A profoundly moving novel on the redemptive, healing power of nature from bestseller Gill Lewis.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An outstanding novella exploring the impact of anxiety and depression, and the redemptive power of nature" -- The Bookseller

"The author's love of nature shines throughout this book ... A moving story of finding hope in the most unlikely of places" -- INIS
"Gill Lewis writes with a knowing eye about animals and the power of nature to heal ... This little book packs a powerful punch" -- Clare Morpurgo, School Librarian Journal
