Something is happening to Leo, something is happening to his world, but will anyone listen?
Leo Roslin knows that he’s running out of time. He can feel his body breaking down and dreams seeping into his waking life blurring the line with reality. He sees a runner who isn’t there, a hawk standing still in the air in the way no hawk can, and finally a girl who has died. Leo is the only one who can help Eadie discover who killed her sister, but he’s running out of time. Ishiguro’s Never Let me Go meets The Catcher in the Rye in this beautifully crafted coming of age love story and fantasy thriller.
