Winner of the Miles Franklin Literary Award.
Meet Jimmy Flick. He's not like other kids - he's both too fast and too slow. Jimmy's mother, Paula, is the only one who can manage him. She teaches him how to count sheep so that he can fall asleep. She holds him tight enough to stop his cells spinning. It is only Paula who can keep Jimmy out of his father's way. But when Jimmy's world falls apart, he has to navigate life on his own and make things right.
"Laguna creates a world and a character and a language that we become immersed within.... This is humane, passionate, true." (Christos Tsiolkas)
