"The body is a house of many windows: there we all sit, showing ourselves and crying on the passers-by to come and love us." — Robert Louis Stevenson

Nick hates it when people call him a genius. Sure, he's going to Cambridge University aged 15, but he says that's just because he works hard. And, secretly, he only works hard to get some kind of attention from his workaholic father. Not that his strategy is working. When he arrives at Cambridge, he finds the work hard and socializing even harder. Until, that is, he starts to cox for the college rowing crew and all hell breaks loose . . .

Author Biography

A British-American citizen of Italian heritage, Alexia Casale is an author, teacher and writing consultant. After studying psychology then educational technology at Cambridge University (England), she moved to New York. There she worked on the Tony Award–winning 2004 Broadway revival of La Cage aux Folles, working with legendary composer Jerry Herman and multiple Tony Award winners Harvey Fierstein, director Jerry Zaks and choreographer Jerry Mitchell. She has families ties in California and New York, where all four of her paternal great-grandparents arrived from Eastern Europe and were processed at Ellis Island.

After returning to the U.K., Alexia completed a Ph.D. and teaching qualification. In between, she worked as a West End script-critic, box-office manager for a music festival and executive editor of a human rights journal.
