“I could feel it coming. War, I mean. Creeping up on us, into our town, down our street, into our house. Smiling like a friend, like it was Batman come to save us when really it was the Joker all along.”

With far-right Albion on the brink of war with Europe, ten-year-old Alan and his little brother Sam are sent away to safety. Dad tells Alan he has to be brave, like the superheroes he loves, but Alan isn’t too sure. He wants to be wherever Dad is – and anyway, can he really be sure who’s a hero and who’s a villain?

A heartwarming, heartbreaking story of acceptance, love, and bravery in all its different forms, from the ac claimed author of Joe All Alone.
