The doctors said no more could be done and advised Grace's parents to put her away. On her first day at the Briar Mental Institute, Grace, aged eleven, meets Daniel. Debonair Daniel, an epileptic who can type with his feet, sees a different Grace: someone to share secrets and canoodle with, someone to fight for. A deeply affecting, spirit-soaring story of love against the odds.

Shortlisted for the Orange Prize for Fiction for 2011, The Times Bookclub choice for April, Nominated for The London Book Award 2011 in the London Awards for Art and Performance and The Author's Club First Book Award.
