What about the bits of story that invade his head? Uncertain what's real -- and who he is -- Ricky can't stop sifting for clues. He has no idea how things will end up . . .With sunlight, verve and humour, award-winning writer Damien Wilkins brings us a beguiling boy who's trying to make sense of it all"--Back cover.
