From the author of bestselling and Carnegie-nominated debut BOY UNDERWATER comes another moving, hilarious novel of friendship and family secrets, which shows that people are people, no matter where they're from.
Here's something you won't believe: someone is doing TERRIBLE things to Mrs Martin, Cymbeline Igloo's favourite teacher of all time. If they carry on she'll leave the school, which would be a complete and total DISASTER. Cymbeline has to find out who the culprit is (after he's found out what 'culprit' means). He's also got to help his friend Veronique, whose grandma is dangerously ill. Nanai is refusing to eat anything - and it seems she has a secret, connected to her arrival in the UK as a Boat Person from Vietnam, a traumatic journey in which she lost her twin sister. Can Cymbeline figure out the mystery in time?
With friends old and new (including Kit-Kat, Veronique's genius pet rat) Cymbeline Igloo negotiates the turbulent waters of childhood - and finds that even the most unexpected people can change your life in wonderful ways...
