What is the Cusp? No one really knows, because no one can cross it. Twelve years ago, the last Official Expedition across the Cusp and into the Forbidden Land ended in disaster when the great explorer Alex Jennings returned completely mad, thinking he was a dog. Now Alex Jennings... has escaped from the hospital, repeating the word 'squiggles' over and over again. And Davidus Kyte, the new and extremely evil Head of Expeditions, is after his son - also called Alex Jennings. Kyte is convinced the boy knows the meaning of 'squiggles', what it was that his father found beyond the Cusp, and the real reason why dogs can cross it but people can't. But Alex is only a small and slightly useless boy in an ugly knitted jumper. So, with the help of Martha, a girl with unfeasibly sharp teeth, and Arnauld, a talking dog, he dodges out of Kyte's clutches and embarks on an extraordinary adventure across the Forbidden Land. Along the way, together they learn the meaning of love, life, and the dreadful secret behind the word 'squiggles'...Funny, heartwarming, surreal and tender, The Cusp is an exceptional debut from Ross Montgomery.
