"Perfectly captures how it feels to be an outsider. I loved it." Tamsin Winter

Fifteen year old Sander wishes he was like everyone else. But he has Silver-Russell syndrome, a condition that affects one in a hundred thousand. It means he is smaller than all the other kids in school, a place where the biggest and the loudest get all the attention. Like Niklas.
Everyone thinks Niklas is cool and good-looking - except Sander. He doesn't like the way Niklas brags, behaves like a jerk and lies. Niklas is one of life's tall people and next to him, Sander always ends up feeling small.
But Sander is different in more ways than one. He notices things other people miss, and he's noticed something about Niklas...
A moving coming-of-age classic, about fitting in, standing out and the power of friendship.
