9780008100377: Of Things Gone Astray

Mrs Featherby had been having pleasant dreams until she woke to discover the front of her house had vanished overnight ...On a seemingly normal morning in London, a group of people all lose something dear to them, something dear but peculiar: the front of their house, their piano keys, their sense of direction, their place of work. Meanwhile, Jake, a young boy whose father brings him to London following his mother's sudden death in an earthquake, finds himself strangely attracted to other people's lost things. But little does he realise that his most valuable possession is slipping away from him. Of Things Gone Astray is a magical fable about modern life and values. Perfect for fans of Andrew Kaufman and Cecelia Ahern.

Review:

'I wanted to read this quickly but it kept making me stop to think. I love this stunning collection of quirky ideas, skillfully told, and any one of them could happen to any one of us, at any time.' CECELIA AHERN 'This book reveals the world as it really is: fantastic. A rare inspiring feat.' ANDREW KAUFMAN 'Of Things Gone Astray may be Janina Matthewson's first novel, but it marks her out as a writer to follow ... Reality, fantasy and imagery intermingle to create a beautiful whole.' WE LOVE THIS BOOK 'Refreshing and spare, like a bittersweet melody echoing in an empty hallway, Matthewson's debut novel will linger in the reader's memory.' KIRKUS
