Longlisted for the Branford Boase Award

Phoebe is autistic. She prefers to stay in her comfort zone: walking her dog, writing fantasy fiction, surviving school with as few incidents as possible.

When her best (and only) friend rebels and gets a secret boyfriend, Phoebe reluctantly agrees to cover for her. Before long, Phoebe’s dealing with all sorts of things she’d rather not, like deception, fashionable jackets, and the bewildering politics of the school chess club. Breaking the rules has never been Phoebe’s thing, but as events take a seriously unexpected turn, she realises there’s more to her than she ever imagined . . .

Om forfatteren

Gavin Extence was born in 1982 and grew up in the interestingly named village of Swineshead, Lincolnshire. From the ages of 5-11, he enjoyed a brief but illustrious career as a chess player, winning numerous national championships and travelling to Moscow and St Petersburg to pit his wits against the finest young minds in Russia. He won only one game. Gavin’s first book – The Universe versus Alex Woods – was a Richard & Judy Book Club choice and one of the Waterstones Eleven; it was also shortlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize, sold over 100,000 copies and is being developed for the big screen. He lives in Sheffield.

Anmeldelser

"A uniquely funny, poignant and delightful coming-of-age story"

Imogen Russell Williams, Guardian

"A beautifully crafted character study and a compelling and very funny friendship story"

Irish Independent

"Neurodiversity has a voice, and it's witty and uplifting and enlightening all at once"

Jasper Fforde

"A lovely book"

Graeme Simsion

"Totally enchanting, it’s warm and funny with such a kind heart, just like Phoebe who is a wonderfully charming character to spend time with"

Ciara Smyth

"Phoebe’s distinctive voice – filled with both yearning and intelligent analysis – is the great strength of this novel and is one of the finest examples I’ve encountered in YA fiction of depicting neurodiversity as genuine difference, rather than as disability or superpower… This is an utterly gorgeous book"

Claire Hennessy, Irish Times

"An in-depth, relatable exploration of growing up as an autistic teenager. Set in the northeast of England, Finding Phoebe is a tale of friendship, secrecy and unexpected challenges"

National Autistic Society

"A humdinger of a story packed with infectious humour and heart, Finding Phoebe is reading for pleasure at its absolute best"

Jessica Scott-Whyte
