Shortlisted for the Blue Peter Book Award A hilarious middle-grade novel about one boy's quest to get rid of a ridiculous amount of bad luck! After a traumatic run-in with the fortune teller from a visiting funfair - thanks to an unfortunately-timed sneeze - Riley finds himself CURSED. Life as he knows it quickly becomes a catalogue of disasters - from accidentally supergluing himself to his classmates and ruining the school football team's sponsorship deal, to flooding his house and losing class 4's pet rabbit - Riley knows the bad luck is out to get him. Enter new kid: Brad Chicago. He's super-cool, well-groomed and stylish, with an excellent stationery collection. And for some reason he wants to be Riley's friend. Can Riley get rid of the curse before Brad discovers he's a walking disaster? Laugh-out-loud funny, warm-hearted and anarchic in a way that readers will love. Brought to life with Aleksei Bitskoff's lively, humorous illustrations. Perfect for fans of Kid Normal, David Solomons' My Brother is a Superhero and David Baddiel. Award-winning author Simon James Green is best known for his funny books for teens. This is his first book for middle-grade readers.

“And scene!”

Completely bonkers, genuinely laugh out loud funny. If I saw Riley in the vicinity I'd be running in the other direction as fast as I could, but reading about his mishaps was a total joy
