Magic realism comes to middle England in this brilliantly original little book, with suburban Luton supplying the unlikely setting for a battle of wills between a teenage boy and the forces of fate.”

    omg i love this book but it hurt my head. i didn’t even finish it there came a point in time where i was reading it at 4 am and i just got up and put it up. i felt confused and literally felt as if i was going insane and schizophrenic with justin. and i commend(?) you for this because only the best of authors can push me into a characters being and make them a part of me. i love your way of writing and how it throws the reader into the story. i also love your book how i live now. i believe you’re one of the almost nonexistent real authors.
