Jimmy Kaga-Ricci owes everything to The Ark. He’s their frontman – and playing in a band with his mates is all he ever dreamed of doing.

There is brilliant representation, wonderful characters, and the voice is incredibly natural. I can’t wait for everyone to read this book and to delight at how well Alice Oseman writes her characters.
