9780007479092: The Drowning of Arthur Braxton

An urban fairy tale from the acclaimed author of 99 Reasons Why.

Arthur Braxton runs away from school.

He hides out in an abandoned building, an old Edwardian bathhouse.

He discovers a naked woman swimming in the pool.

From this point on, nothing will ever be the same.

The Drowning of Arthur Braxton is an unflinching account of the pain and trauma of adolescence and of how first love can transform the most unhappy of lives into something miraculous. It is a dark and brooding modern fairy tale from one of our most gifted writers.

'Magical, weird and wonderful. Dark unique brilliance.' MATT HAIG, author of The Radleys

'This thoroughly modern retelling is everything a fairy tale should be: strange, beautiful and wholly unexpected.' TANYA BYRNE, author of Heart Shaped Bruise

'A quirky magical tale of wit, water and destiny. Caroline Smailes always writes with flair and empathy – this time she explores the power of our need to belong.' SARAH SALWAY, author of Something Beginning With

‘A dark but enchanting tale of the redemptive power of love.’ TOM VOWLER author of What Lies Within

‘One of the most unusual and talented writers around .’ STUART EVERS, Netgalley
