As a kid, Theo Kane broke both her legs, and was given an experimental drug to block pain - which actually led to her no longer being able to feel pain, ever.

This is another story I read on my Samsung Galaxy Note, and it was an excellent one! I was hooked into this world from the very beginning and liked Theo instantly.

I loved the concept of the Launen and the ghetto th

Naomi Clark lives in Cambridge and is a mild-mannered office worker by day, but a slightly crazed writer by night. She has a perfectly healthy obsession with giant sea creatures and a preference for vodka-based cocktails. When she's not writing, Naomi is probably either reading or watching 80s cartoon shows, and sometimes she manages to do all three at once.
