Far Rockaway

Publisher: Hodder Children's Books

It was Cat’s fault. She walked out in front of the fire truck and both she, and her grandfather Victor, end up in the hospital Emergency Room. One will survive, the other won’t.

Cat struggles to hang on to life in both the real world, where her brain is bleeding, and in a strange dreamworld populated by the heroes and villains from childhood stories. If she can fight her way to an island at the very edge of this strange world she may be able to rescue Victor before it’s too late but to do that she will need every ounce of strength and determination she possesses.

A clever and unusual observation of love, life and death explored through fantastic and dangerous adventures with larger than life characters.
