The bestselling modern fairytale, with a new introduction from Luke Cutforth

‘I loved it … so good!’ CARRIE HOPE FLETCHER

Arthur Braxton has had enough. His mum has left, his dad is broken and he’s the laughing stock of his high school.

But things are about to change. When Arthur runs away and shelters in an old abandoned bathhouse, he sees a naked woman swimming in the pool. From this point on, his sad little life will never be the same.

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘Magical, weird, wonderful, dark unique Northern brilliance’ MATT HAIG '…there was so much about this book to love; the decrepit seaside setting, the terrible weather, the gritty realism, the magic, the freshness, the strangeness, and the way the story and the characters haunted me afterwards. I felt safe throughout this novel – I knew I was in good hands; with each change of voice and structure I remained confident in Smailes’ ability to lead things to a satisfying conclusion. And that's exactly what she did’ CARYS BRAY ‘This thoroughly modern retelling is everything a fairy tale should be: strange, beautiful and wholly unexpected’ TANYA BYRNE ‘This beautifully told and sometimes disturbing tale will intrigue as it reaches its dramatic conclusion’ Bella ‘I cannot compare this to anything I’ve ever read. You will fall in love with this book’ EMMA BLACKERY ‘Someone should make this into a film’ LUKEISNOTSEXY

“Superb!”

I don’t take to much in the way of contemporary writing. It is often bland (even if full of pretty sentences), pre-occupied with middle-class, first world concerns, and largely a waste of even the tiny amount of... More

I heard about this book from various YouTubers (Carrie Hope Fletcher, Emma Blackery and Luke Cutforth.) and god did I love this book!

At first I didn't know if I wanted to read it as it sounded sad.
