Waterstones Says

When Cole’s painting brings worldwide acclaim and instant fame, he discovers that white lies and fine art lead to all manner of mysteries and mishaps in this page-turning tale from the author of The Goldfish Boy.

Telling a little white lie now and then is harmless, right? But what if it leads to you being a household name and international celebrity?

Cole is the odd one out at school: the other kids have the latest gadgets and trainers while his family struggles to make ends meet.

Until the day one of his paintings is talent-spotted and sells for thousands of pounds at a posh London gallery. Suddenly, Cole is the toast of the international art world, the star guest on TV shows, rich beyond his wildest dreams, hailed as a boy genius!

Being famous is FANTASTIC... but Cole has a guilty secret that if exposed will bring everything crashing down around him...

A story of fame and fortune, making mistakes and learning to be true to yourself, from the bestselling author of The Goldfish Boy.

“This is a story of repercussions. Of pressures. Of trying to do the right thing. Of new trainers...It's also a tale of a mystery and a little sister...”
