The Song From Somewhere Else

Frank doesn't know how to feel when Nick Underbridge rescues her from bullies. No one at school likes him. He's big, quiet and he smells weird.

And yet, there's something nice about Nick's house. Frank hears music playing - it's light and good and it makes her feel happy for the first time in forever. But there's more to Nick, and to his house, than meets the eye, and soon Frank realises she isn't the only one keeping secrets. Or the only one who needs helps ...

It is amazingly illustrated throughout by the utterly brilliant Levi Pinfold. (All the pictures on this bit of the website are by him.)
