Adventure stories (Children's / Teenage)

'A wonderful time-travelling adventure with more twists and turns than the hands of a clock on a helter-skelter. Alex and Jasper are a fantastic dynamic duo, and the book has genuine friendship and warmth at the heart of a timey-wimey mystery. I loved it.'
- L.D. Lapinski, author of The Strangeworlds Travel Agency

Have you ever thought what it might be like if you were famous in the future? A brilliant adventure for fans of Ross Welford - a story about friendship, courage and embracing our talents even when they make us stand out.

On the day Alex was born, crowds surrounded the hospital. On her first day of school, people spied from the gates. And recently, strangers came to watch her perform in her school play ... as the llama.

But why? Alex has always been a nobody.

Then a mysterious boy named Jasper starts at school and he alone seems to know the answer. But before he can tell Alex, he disappears ... into the future. Can Alex brave traveling into the future to discover what's happened to him and to unravel the secret of her own astonishing destiny ... before time runs out?

'A great idea, pulled off with real panache ... the whole thing is a delight'

Anthony McGowan, author of Lark

'A joyous, inventive and original rollicking adventure'
Liz Hyder, author of Bearmouth

'A brilliant page-turning, time travelling adventure, full of heart and filled with courage and friendship'

'A super original concept and a book brimming with imagination. And I loved that ending!!!'
