Overview

Lemony Snicket meets His Dark Materials in this unforgettable YA novel

Oskar is the ultimate teenage loner. He's been living on the streets since he was 13, he hates being touched and his eyes are always itchy from chronic conjunctivitis. To perk himself up, he paints the misery of mankind and there's so much of that about! But one day during a not-so-routine eye test his bleak perspective is blown apart, when he tries on a pair of very unusual lenses. The world he glimpses is filled with love, light and wonder—and Oskar is furious. But those lenses have opened his inner eye and much against his darker nature, Oskar's perception and behavior begin to change in ways that he could never, ever have predicted.

Reviews

"A delightfully twisted tale, full of sharp humour and keen observations. Oskar makes for a very memorable modern-day anti-hero." —Daily Mirror 

"[S]ophisticated, highly imaginative and idiosyncratic...An altogether rare treat."— Booklist Online
