The Boy and Girl Who Broke The World Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

'Tinges of the supernatural add to the electric sense of place in a caustic and original novel' Financial TimesBilly Sloat and Lydia Lemon don't have much in common, unless you count growing up on the same (wrong) side of the tracks, the lack of a mother, and a persistent loneliness that has inspired creative coping mechanisms. When the lives of these two loners are thrust together, Lydia's cynicism is met with Billy's sincere optimism, and both begin to question their own outlook on life.

On top of that, weird happenings including an impossible tornado and an all-consuming fog are cropping up around them - maybe even because of them.

With a unique mix of raw emotion, humor, and heart, the surreal plotline pulls readers through an epic exploration of how caring for others makes us vulnerable - and how utterly pointless life would be if we didn't.
