In The Wide, Open Air
Charlotte Amelia Poe
Sent to live in the small seaside town of Lowestoft by his mother, Theo sits, grumpy and alone in a small cafe, glaring at his coffee. A world away from his life in New York, at least his demons can’t reach him there.
Enter stage left: Felix. A boy with no sense of self-preservation and a kindness that can’t be beaten down, he spies the grumpy boy sitting by himself and wonders, what’s he so angry about?
A tale of the noise and bustle, the still and silence, running so fast you might not be able to stop, and finally, finally, coming up for air.
