When he's sent to Latham House, a boarding school for sick teens, Lane thinks his life may as well be over. But when he meets Sadie and her friends - a group of eccentric troublemakers - he realises that maybe getting sick is just the beginning. That illness doesn't have to define you, and that falling in love is its own cure. Extraordinary Means is a darkly funny story about true friendships, ill-fated love and the rare miracle of second chances.
Extraordinary Means is published here in the UK tomorrow, June 4th, by Simon and Schuster, and promises to be just as good as Severed Heads, Broken Hearts. It has a great, unusual cover too!
