By Sally Christie

"An absolutely beautifully crafted read, with unforgettable characters who will truly get under your skin” - The Bookseller

Alex has worked out a foolproof way to avoid being picked on. Don’t React. It’s so simple, it’s brilliant!

David does react and becomes an outcast, nicknamed Bogsy. He’s branded a weirdo and Alex is determined to avoid the same fate.

But one day, Alex gets a note in his bag that forces him out of his safe little world.

Who sent the note? And is it true – will a boy really fly?

A powerful story about friendship, loneliness and a strange kind of genius.

Sally Christie


Sally Christie’s first job, nearly thirty years ago, was with a publisher of children’s books. While she was there, she had a go at writing herself and (cunningly calling herself Syd Carter) sent the story to an editor in her own office. It was accepted. She has grown up a lot since then, with two notable results: The Icarus Show is a much better story than Syd’s was; and she felt able to submit it to David Fickling Books under her own name.
