It just takes one day for Seb's life to fall apart. He is in trouble with school for non-attendance, in trouble with his mother for far too many things to mention, and he has just been dumped by his girlfriend. So instead of trying to sort out any of these troubles, Seb takes off for the day, to central London, where things soon start to unravel. Seb awakes a few days later in a hospital bed, lucky to be alive after having got into a fight, and having been saved by an unknown character. But who is that person, and why did he step in to save Seb? Soon Seb is convinced that he has a guardian angel and he is determined to find out who he is. But searching for a guardian angel is no easy task! Wonderfully vivid and remarkably atmospheric, this is a novel for all young adults who want to read books with bite.--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
Graham has spent his whole career in children's publishing, firstly as a designer and Creative Director and latterly as a journalist and author. His first published work was a book of poetry, Seeing is Touching (Taurus Press), which came out while he was studying Information Graphics at Harrow School of Art. For some reason, he didn't see this as a sign of things to come and didn't write anything else for years.
Graham has worked for Marvel Comics writing scripts (which was his storytelling apprenticeship), done an eight year stint as a copywriter in an advertising agency (where they pay you more for writing less) and was the Children's Editor for Publishing News until it's closure in 2008. He has also written a number of TV and film-related books, for characters such as SpiderMan, Wallace and Gromit, Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Judge Dredd.
Bloomsbury have published his critically acclaimed YA fiction, including Radio Radio, How It Works - South Lanarkshire Book Award winner, 2005 - Zoo, Tokyo - Catalan Young Adult Fiction Award , 2009 - and Omega Place.
Usborne publish his thrillers for the 8-12 age range, including Snatched!, Kaï-ro, I Spy: The Constantinople Caper and its sequel Mean Streets: The Chicago Caper.
Meanwhile Catnip have republished new and revised editions of the books he wrote in the mid-90s: Strange Hiding Place, Faultline, Takedown (previously titled Skitzo) and Playing with Phyre (previously titled Haden's Quest).
