About the Book
Book description

Billie Scott is an artist. Her debut gallery exhibition opens in a few months. Within the fortnight she'll be completely blind. As Billie struggles to deal with her impending blindness, she sets off on a journey from Middlesbrough to London; into a world of post-austerity Britain and the problems facing those left behind. Her goal is to find ten people to paint for her exhibition, as well as the inspiration to continue with her art, and the strength to move on with her life.
