Shortlisted for the 2021 Booker Prize
Astrobiologist, Theo Byrne, has found a way to search for life on planets that are dozens of light years away. He is also the widowed father of nine-year-old Robin, who is funny, loving, and filled with deep thoughts and emotions. Robin adores animals, and can spend hours painting elaborate pictures, but he is about to be expelled from school for smashing his friend’s face with a metal thermos.
When the only solution offered is to put his son on psychoactive drugs, Theo looks to other planets as a possible refuge for Robin, all the while fostering his son’s desperate campaign to help save this planet.
