Rowan knows he is strange. But dangerous? He didn't mean to scare his sister. In his right mind, he wouldn't hurt a fly. But there's a place he can go where they say they can fix his mind...This haunting novel about mental illness and family relationships, set at the start of the Second World War, was shortlisted for the 2010 CILIP Carnegie Medal.
