Description

For a millionth of a second the car grazed the drenched moorland.

If it had come down on any other patch of ground Finn would simply have been another statistic.

Death by dangerous driving. But the car hit the surface of the Earth at Exit 43.

It slid through the membrane like a hot knife through butter, plunging into the darkness and catapulting Finn from its shattered windscreen as it fell.

Finn Oliver knows he'll never come to terms with his father's death, but joy-riding over the moors in his mum's beat-up old car is a quick fix of freedom and forgetting.

Until the accident happens - and Finn finds himself hurtling through the wafer-thin divide between the worlds of the living and the dead.

Adventurous, charming and poignant by turns, "The Boy Who Fell Down Exit 43" is a quirky debut novel laced with humour and a dollop of magic.
