Aquarium, Paperback


"Startlingly brilliant". (Spectator). "A triumph". (Daily Mail). Aged nine, Caitlin spends almost every afternoon at the local aquarium while her mother works overtime at her construction job.

Caitlin's whole world is her school, her mother, occasionally her mother's boyfriends, and the fish at the aquarium.

She has no friends at school, apart from Shalini, who is making a paper mache Hindu reindeer with her, and no other family.

But Caitlin has made a friend at the aquarium; an old man who seems to know something about Caitlin, something she doesn't even know about herself.
