A timely, contemporary novel challenging ideas around health - our own and our planet's - and the stigma that persists around illness by Printz Medallist and internationally bestselling novelist, Marcus Sedgwick. Ash gets on a greyhound bus to the last place anyone has heard of B...ly. That place being Snowflake, Arizona. Arriving at the Forties, six thousand feet high in the wide red desert, Ash meets Mona, her goat, Socrates (who could be smart), her dog, Blackie,and finds step-brother Bly too. After What Happened theirs is a forgotten community living outside time. In their ramshackle homes, the walls lined with tin foil, they're all sick. But this isn't any ordinary sickness. The world has poisoned them. When Ash takes ill, the doctor's response is, 'it's all in your mind'. Ash begins a quest for self-knowledge and a way to survive modern life. This humane and deeply thoughtful novel is about resilience, trust, family and love, when all seems lost.
