Since he was 5 years old, Igor and his family have been on the run from a mysterious man dubbed the Lizard Man all because of something his Dad saw one dreadful night. They’ve lived in so many places and have had so many names Igor doesn’t even know what his real name is anymore. 

There are some things that don’t change after each move, including his father’s strict rules. Igor just wants to be a normal kid and go to a normal school and is shocked when his dad agrees to let him attend the local middle school. After a troubling start, Igor makes some friends but is torn between following his father’s rules and playing it cool. Not wanting to have to explain himself he follows his friends to the part of town his father strictly said not to go. It in this part of town where things start to feel all too familiar. 

Filled with suspense and intrigue this 2022 Forest of Reading Silver Birch Nominated titles by Canadian author Iain Lawrence is sure to keep you reading way past your bedtime!
