LoveReading View on The Boy Who Fooled the World

Telling a little white lie now and then is harmless, right? But what if it leads to you being a household name and international celebrity? Cole is the boy who fooled the world and finds himself trapped in a huge web of lies... can he break free?

The brand new, read-in-one-sitting mystery from the bestselling author of The Goldfish Boy.


The Boy Who Fooled the World Synopsis

When a little white lie leads to a huge dose of trouble...

Cole is the odd one out at school: the other kids have the latest gadgets and trainers while his family struggles to make ends meet. Until the day one of his paintings is talent-spotted and sells for thousands of pounds at a posh London gallery. Suddenly, Cole is the toast of the international art world, the star guest on TV shows, rich beyond his wildest dreams, hailed as a boy genius! Being famous is FANTASTIC... but Cole has a guilty secret that if exposed will bring everything crashing down around him...

A story of fame and fortune, making mistakes and learning to be true to yourself.
