Jack's Well is a coming-of-age novel that flickers between a troubled adolescent's recovery journal, and a series of world-famous fantasy children's novels. Jack Wilde inhabits both worlds and is torn between them as he comes to terms with his fame, his complicated relationship with his dad, the loss of his mum and a relentless bullying campaign online and at school.

This is where ten-year-old Molly Fortune finds herself, with no recollection of how she got there.

And what will happen when the world outside comes crashing in on Molly and her friends?
