Brighton-based Edward Hogan's first Young Adult novel is a gripping, fast paced thriller.
Chubby schoolboy Daniel Lever is traumatized. His parents have split up. He hates sport. In an attempt to relieve Daniel's trauma, his hard drinking father carts him off to Leisure World for a week – a nightmare scenario. Upon arriving at Leisure World, Daniel forces the driver to swerve to avoid hitting a girl in red in the middle of the road – but nobody else sees the girl. Daniel's dad becomes worried as Daniel spends much of the week with 'Lexi'. Is she real? Is she a ghost? Can we use the hour in every October when the clocks go back to rectify a past bad deed?
