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.
