Waterstones Says

Brilliantly fresh, funny and original, The Infinite tells the story of Elle, a Leapling – one of the special children born on 29 February who possess The Gift of moving through time. With her best pal Big Ben, she sets off on a journey into the future – to fix things before it is too late. Delightful and energetic, The Infinite is a smart adventure full of lovable characters.

'What an inspiration. The future just got so much better' - Benjamin Zephaniah

FIGHT CRIME, ACROSS TIME!

Leaplings, children born on the 29th of February, are very rare. Rarer still are Leaplings with The Gift - the ability to leap through time. Elle Bibi-Imbele Ifie has The Gift, but she's never used it. Until now.

On her twelfth birthday, Elle and her best friend Big Ben travel to the Time Squad Centre in 2048. Elle has received a mysterious warning from the future. Other Leaplings are disappearing in time - and not everyone at the centre can be trusted. Soon Elle's adventure becomes more than a race through time. It's a race against time. She must fight to save the world as she knows it - before it ceases to exist...

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The Infinite is vivid, funny, exciting and inventive. But there are books that are all those things and still don't work. This works brilliantly, and the characters are so delightful that I don't think anyone could fail to like them. I was so fond of Elle and Big Ben that I'd have followed them anywhere. Patience Agbabi has created something fresh and original here, and I look forward very much to what she writes next' - Philip Pullman

'A fascinating, original and smart adventure tale with a rhythmic prose style that leaps off the page into scintillating life. It has a magic all of its own' - Bernadine Evaristo

'The Infinite is so adventurous that it lit up parts of my brain I didn't know I had. Patience Agbabi has caused a wonderful supernova deep in the literary universe ...  Elle is curious, questioning and fearless. What an inspiration. The future just got so much better' - Benjamin Zephaniah

'Exactly as brilliant as I thought it would be. An exciting, bold, witty and magical book' - Katherine Rundell

“Interesting and exciting.”

a really unusual book told from the point of view of a child born on the 29th Feb. She's a Leapling - she can time travel and she has to, in order to save the world.
It's a mystery, an adventure, it's... More
