Waterstones Says

Both a rip-roaring locked room mystery set in a run-down hotel where a famous guest vanished into thin air and a sensitive exploration of living with a parent with bipolar, The Rollercoaster Boy is another superbly realised children's novel from the author of The Goldfish Boy.

Signed Edition

A Standard Edition is available here

Todd and Laurie's dad is either on top of the world, taking them on fun adventures, or down in the depths and sleeping all the time. In the middle of the night, he bundles them into the car and drives them to the Paradise Hotel. He paints a picture of a luxurious mansion surrounded by acres of land - a fairground, a swanky swimming pool, a grand ballroom, firework displays.

The reality is a rundown dump - and the disappointment means Dad takes to his bed. Todd and Laurie have the run of the place, and meet Scout, the daughter of the owner, who tells them about the night many years ago when a famous novelist vanished from her room on the top floor, which was locked from the inside... with clues to crack, a mystery to solve, and Dad to worry about, this holiday is full of twists and turns.

A sensitive, empathetic portrayal of having a parent with bipolar.
