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.
Suitable for readers from 9-11 years.
