Product description

Living on a prayer. Living on the edge. It’s the stuff of rock songs. Living in a van? Not so much. Felix’s life is outwardly normal. He’s thirteen (nearly). He’s brilliant at memorising facts. He lives with his mum and his pet gerbil. But he has a secret: they live in a van. His mum, Astrid, has begged him not to breathe a word about it. It’s only for a while, till she finds a new job. Nobody needs to know. So Felix does his best to hide the fact that most of his clothes are in storage, he only gets to shower once a week (at the community centre), and he’s hungry nearly the entire time. But Felix has a plan to turn their lives around. He’s going to win the big cash prize on his favourite TV quiz show. He’s got the brains. He’s got the motivation. Now he just needs a bit of luck…
