What Milo Saw

Sphere

A BIG story about a small boy who sees the world a little differently

Milo curled his thumb and forefinger together to make a small hole and held his fingers up to Al´s eyes. ´Look through here. That´s what I see. Kind of, only worse.´
´Wow, that must be amazing.´
Milo shrugged. ´Not really.´
´I mean, it makes you focus, doesn´t it? I bet you see all kinds of stuff that other people miss.´

Nine-year-old Milo Moon has retinitis pigmentosa: his eyes are slowly failing and he will eventually go blind. But for now he sees the world through a pin hole and notices things other people don´t. When Milo´s beloved gran succumbs to dementia and moves into a nursing home, Milo soon realises there´s something wrong at the home. So with just Tripi, the nursing home´s cook, and Hamlet, his pet pig, to help, Milo sets out on a mission to expose the nursing home and the sinister Nurse Thornhill.

Insightful, wise and surprising, What Milo Saw is filled with big ideas and simple truths. Milo sees the world in a very special way and it will be impossible for you not to fall in love with him and then share his story with everyone you know.

Rezension
I defy you not to fall in love with Milo . . . What Milo Saw is a reminder to us all that in life, perspective is everything. A modern-day fable and undoubtedly a future classic Clare Mackintosh, author of Sunday Times Top Ten bestselling I Let You Go
Portrait

She was named after two great women, Virginia Wade and Virginia Woolf, in the hope she would be a writer and a tennis star. She never did become a tennis player but her dream of becoming a writer has come true - What Milo Saw is her first novel.
