The astonishing, beautiful new story for all readers of 10 and over from the bestselling and Costa-shortlisted author of TIME TRAVELLING WITH A HAMSTER.


'A wonderful story' Kiran Millwood Hargrave


There are stories about people who want to live forever.


This is not one of those stories.


This is a story about someone who wants to stop...


Alfie Monk is like any other nearly teenage boy - except he's 1,000 years old and can remember the last Viking invasion of England.


Obviously no one believes him.


So when everything Alfie knows and loves is destroyed in a fire, and the modern world comes crashing in, Alfie embarks on a mission to find friendship, acceptance, and a different way to live...


... which means finding a way to make sure he will eventually die.
