Publisher's Summary

Fourteen-year-old Graham Sinclair was born with huge, strange hands, the wrong hands. He was also born with a secret. The only time he ever told someone his secret, it got him into big trouble. So he won't be telling anyone ever again. But then there's the plane crash. And the baby. And the e-mail out of the blue:

Congratulations on a brave act. I know how brave it was because I saw what you did. I saw everything you did. Do you understand? You know how to contact me. If you choose not to, I will be forced to come and find you. I need to understand what I saw. One way or the other.

Could answering this e-mail be an amazing opportunity, or the biggest mistake of his life?

In Nigel Richardson's suspenseful and magical debut novel, Graham finds his life suddenly, thrillingly complicated, and his secret harder and harder to conceal.

Critic Reviews

"Part thriller, part fable, The Wrong Hands has elements of magic realism reminiscent of Skellig, and a teenage narrator with the kind of ingenue voice that marked The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time." (The Sunday Telegraph)
"Hugely entertaining." (The Independent)
"Sharp and knowing and funny." (The Sunday Times)
