"Remarkable suspense... mysterious and wrenching" ... Anthony Minghella

I'm not most kids. I'm Louis Drax. Stuff happens to me that shouldn't happen, like going on a picnic where you drown...

Nine-year-old Louis Drax is a problem child: bright, precocious, deceitful and disturbingly accident prone. When he falls off a cliff into a ravine, the accident seems almost predestined. The boy miraculously survives – but the family has been shattered. Louis’ father has vanished, his mother is paralyzed by shock, and Louis lies in a coma from which he may never emerge.

In a clinic in Provence, Dr Pascal Dannachet tries to coax Louis back to consciousness. But the case defies medical logic, startling the doctor out of his safe preconceptions, and drawing him inexorably into the dark heart of Louis’ buried world. Only Louis holds the key to the mystery surrounding his fall – and he can’t communicate. Or can he?

Read by Andrew Sachs (Manuel, Fawlty Towers) and Ben Tibber (lead, I Am David), this is an intriguing, shocking, poignant and heartbreaking story about what the human heart can inflict and the mind endure.
