“Daniel Stockholm was fifteen years old when a parasite hijacked his brain, rendering him paralyzed and reliant on machines that run day and night to keep him alive.
For nine years, Danny has been confined within a biological prison with only two small windows, through which to view the world around him; a silent witness to the selfless compassion of some and the selfish contrivance of others.
When the malicious actions of care worker, Marcus Salt, threaten to push Danny farther from the ones he loves, and deeper into the dark recesses of his skin cage, he is left with only one option. He must find a way out.”
Few stories have the ability to bring one to tears. This one does. Powerful and poignant, Nico pulls you inside the head of the protagonist and doesn’t let you go. Nico had me bawling my eyes out on a packed plane and while I felt like an idiot, I could not stop reading. I have only one question for all of you agents who lurk the amazon review pages. WHY ARE YOU NOT SCOOPING UP THIS AUTHOR? Well done Nico, well done. I bought the paperback of this one. It deserves to be on the shelf along with the rest of my favorite authors.
