The Song from Somewhere Else
A poignant, darkly comic and deeply moving story about the power of the extraordinary, and finding friendship where you least expect it.
Francesca (‘Frank’) Patel and Nick Underbridge form what at first seems an unlikely friendship when he rescues her from bullies. Nick is ungainly and unpopular and Frank’s initial response is to shun him. However, when she visits his home, she is drawn to the strange music she can hear and quickly discovers other worldly elements to Nick’s life and background. Levi Pinfold’s black and white illustrations form an integral part of this book, enhancing the sense of mystery and uncertainty.
