About the book

100 Remarkable Feats of Xander Maze by Clayton Zane Comber, HarperCollins Publishers

Xander Maze loves lists, and his grandmother is #1 on his list of People I Love Most in the World. But now that Nanna has stage 4 cancer, can a new list of 100 Remarkable Feats really save her?

Particularly when his list contains difficult things like #2 Make a Friend and #3 Make a Best Friend – plus #10 Kiss a Girl (preferably Ally Collins, the girl of Xander's dreams).

Funny, moving and with a protagonist you can't help but fall in love with, '100 Remarkable Feats of Xander Maze' is a book about:

  1. never accepting the unacceptable
  2. the power of lists
  3. one boy's unconditional love for his nanna.
