When fifteen-year-old Kenzie wakes up in hospital in a darkened room, she’s in the dark about what has happened to her too. The doctors break the devastating news that she has been struck down by a rare genetic condition that means her skin has become transparent, revealing everything inside of her - and Kenzie feels repellent to look at.

But when a medical photo of her is leaked and goes viral, the press attention is massive. How can Kenzie live like this, when she doesn’t want to be seen at all? Can a boy who can’t even see her, be the only one to help her to find the answers. . . ?

"So wait,” said Cosmo. “If we go in that door, we might exit on the other side of the galaxy?”'

“I don’t know,” I said. “But we currently live in a tub in a black hole, so what do we have to lose?”

When eleven-year-old space mad Stella Rodriguez shows up at NASA to request that her recording be included in Carl Sagan's Golden Record, something unexpected happens: A black hole follows her home, and sets out to live in her house as a pet. The black hole swallows everything he touches, which is challenging to say the least – but also turns out to be a convenient way to get rid of those items that Stella doesn't want around. Soon theugly sweaters her aunt has made for her all disappear within the black hole, as does the smelly class hamster she's taking care of, and most important, all the reminders of her dead father that are just too painful to have around.

It's not until Stella, her younger brother, Cosmo, the family puppy and even the bathroom tub all get swallowed up by the black hole that Stella realizes she has been letting her own grief consume her. And that's not the only thing she realizes as she attempts to get back home…

From the author of Confessions of an Imaginary Friendcomes an astonishingly original and funny adventure with a great big heart.
