About this book
In Edinburgh, 1974, a boy is born with a frozen heart, and undergoes surgery. But with no proper implants, his doctor places a cuckoo-clock in his chest. Different from other children, he must resist strong emotion if he wants to survive. Described by the author as "Pinnochio" for the iPod generation.
Little Jack is born with a frozen heart and undergoes a life-saving operation. Dr Madeleine surgically implants a cuckoo-clock into his chest. Anger is too dangerous for his cuckoo-clock heart. When the beautiful young street-singer, Miss Acacia, appears - Jack is in danger of more than just falling in love. He is putting his life on the line.
