17 Orchard Lane is the home of the Radleys and, despite their very best efforts, they are anything but normal
The Radleys by Matt Haig (Paperback ISBN 9781786894670) book cover

Available as Paperback, eBook

Darkly comic fiction from the bestselling author of Reasons to Stay Alive, The Humans and How to Stop Time

FAMILIES. SOMETIMES THEY’RE A BLOODY NIGHTMARE …

Life with the Radleys: Radio 4, dinner parties with the Bishopthorpe neighbours and self-denial. Loads of self-denial. But all hell is about to break loose. When teenage daughter Clara gets attacked on the way home from a party, she and her brother Rowan finally discover why they can’t sleep, can’t eat a Thai salad without fear of asphyxiation and can’t go outside unless they’re smothered in Factor 50.

With a visit from their lethally louche Uncle Will and an increasingly suspicious police force, life in Bishopthorpe is about to change. Drastically.
