(ebook only) Luke finds that his world has changed when wakes from a coma after meningitis. He has synaesthesia; he has a weakness in his leg, disastrous for such a brilliant runner; and he discovers that synaesthesia gives him endless power.
(ebook only) Two YA novels now republished as one ebook. Two deep, fast-paced, mind-stretching, coming-of-age thrillers, appealing particularly to readers who enjoyed my most recent YA novel, Wasted.
