Waterstones Says

Featuring a strange boarding school, missing animals, secret organisations, smugglers and a fantastic autistic protagonist, Kenny's addictive debut children's mystery is thoroughly entertaining from start to finish.

'It's not your chips I'm after, Alice Tonks,' the seagull said sternly. 'We've got a job for you.'

After a rather strange encounter with a seagull on her first day of boarding school, Alice Tonks is left with a lot of questions. Why does the bird need her help? And WHY can she talk to seagulls?

Alice is used to being by herself but she can't solve the mystery alone. With new friends behind her, can Alice harness her magic powers and become the hero she never imagined?

A story about finding your voice, friendship and unlikely heroes, for fans of A Kind of Spark.
