Publisher's Summary

An urban fairy tale from the acclaimed author of 99 Reasons Why.

Arthur Braxton runs away from school. He hides out in an abandoned building, an old Edwardian bathhouse. He discovers a naked woman swimming in the pool. From this point on, nothing will ever be the same.

The Drowning of Arthur Braxton is an unflinching account of the pain and trauma of adolescence and of how first love can transform the most unhappy of lives into something miraculous. It is a dark and brooding modern fairy tale from one of our most gifted writers.

    "Great Audiobook"

    Really good audiobook. The narrator does a great job of bringing each of the wonderful characters, and thus the story, to life. Magical! :)
