A captivating first novel from new writer Rebecca Lloyd, in which magic and imagination thrive among the mundane issues of a boy's everyday life.Danny Broadaxe is a young boy who looks after his disabled dad. When their neighbour, John Seeping, goes on holiday he asks Danny to feed his tropical fish.

And can they change each other's lives for ever?
