Publisher's Summary

The astonishing, beautiful new story from the best-selling and Costa short-listed author of Time Travelling with a Hamster.
There are stories about people who want to live forever.
This is not one of those stories.
This is a story about someone who wants to stop....
Alfie Monk is like any other nearly teenage boy - except he's 1,000 years old and can remember the last Viking invasion of England.
Obviously no-one believes him.
So when everything Alfie knows and loves is destroyed in a fire, and the modern world comes crashing in, Alfie embarks on a mission to find friendship, acceptance and a different way to live...which means finding a way to make sure he will eventually die.

Great Book

Loved this book,especially as I live in the North East of England and was familiar with the different places mentioned. I also liked the historical aspects of it and felt it would bring history alive for a child. I thought both narrators were excellent and they made youu feel that you were there with them. I loved the humour, poignancy and emotion and would recommend it to children and adults alike.
