 Publishers Description: Eight-year-old Murgatroyd Floyd doesn’t fit in—not as a blue-eyed blonde living in Singapore, not in school, and certainly not with his aloof expatriate parents, who seem determined to make his life even harder. Unbeknownst to him, there’s a reason why he’s always the odd boy out: he is an Oddfit, a rare type of human with access to the More Known World, a land invisible to most people.

 Review: That Justin Bieber cover has got to go.

Fug me this was good. So good in fact that I read it in one sitting. The character development is superb as is the world building that combines hope of an alternate existence away from the clouded misery of being stuck in the known world.  The cast is varied in its simplicity rendering the characters with a wealth of depth. It is at once funny, poignant and sad which tends to grab your psyche and pull you into the author’s alternate reality.  GET THIS!
