A stunning adult debut - perfect for fans of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time and My Name is Leon Jasper is thirteen years old and isn't like the other boys his age. His synaesthesia paints his world in fantastical colours specific to every sound and word he hears. Then there's his face-blindness, which prevents him from recognising anyone's face: not his father's, not his own, and certainly not which of the boys in identical school uniforms are bullies and which are friends. But Jasper has seen a new colour, one that he's never seen before: the colour of murder. He knows something has happened to his neighbour, Bee Larkham, but no-one else seems to be taking it as seriously as they should be - and Jasper can't quite remember what happened in the kitchen, with the knife and the screams. As he struggles to get to the bottom of the mystery, including his own role in Bee's murder, someone out there is determined to stop him...
How do you solve a mystery when you can't remember the clues? 'A rich tapestry... distinctive and compelling' Observer `A beautiful, original novel, at once funny and tragic and brave' Sarah Pinborough There are three things you need to know about Jasper. 1. He sees the world completely differently. 2. He can't recognise faces - not even his own. 3. He is the only witness to the murder of his neighbour, Bee Larkham. But it's hard to catch a murderer when you can't recognise their face... An extraordinary and compelling debut which will make you see the world in a way you've never seen it before
