Description of this Electronic Book

A moving story about unconventional love, bullying and being true to yourself.

'I wish I wasn't the weirdest sixteen-year-old guy in the universe.'

Felix would love to have been a number. Numbers have superpowers and they're safe - any problem they might throw up can be solved.

'If I were a five, I'd be shaped like a pentagon . there'd be magic in my walls, safety in my angles.'

People are so much harder to cope with. At least that's how it seems until Bailey Hunter arrives at school. Bailey has a stutter, but he can make friends and he's good at judo. And Bailey seems to have noticed Felix:

'Felix keeps to himself mostly, but there's something about him that keeps drawing me in.'

Both boys find they're living in a world where they can't trust anyone, but might they be able to trust each other, with their secrets, their differences, themselves?
