This is a Stunning retelling by the award-winning author Ali Smith. "Joyful." (Jeanette Winterson). "Pulls you in and doesn't let you go...bold and brilliant." (Jackie Kay). "A glorious wide-awake dream of a book...By the time I finished, my heart was beating and tears stood in my eyes, even as I had the biggest smile written all over my face." (Kirsty Gunn). Girl meets boy. It's a story as old as time. But what happens when an old story meets a brand new set of circumstances? Ali Smith's re-mix of Ovid's most joyful metamorphosis is a story about the kind of fluidity that can't be bottled and sold. It is about girls and boys, girls and girls, love and transformation, a story of puns and doubles, reversals and revelations. Funny and fresh, poetic and political, here is a tale of change for the modern world.
