About the Author

Patience Agbabi was born in London in 1965 to Nigerian parents, spent her teenage years living in North Wales and now lives in Kent with her husband and children. She has been writing poetry for over twenty years, The Infinite is her first novel. Like Elle, she loves sprinting, numbers and pepper soup, but, disappointingly, she was born in August. The Infinite is the first book in The Leap Cycle series.


The Infinite is vivid, funny, exciting and inventive. But there are books that are all those things and still don't work. This works brilliantly, and the characters are so delightful that I don't think anyone could fail to like them. I was so fond of Elle and Big Ben that I'd have followed them anywhere. Patience Agbabi has created something fresh and original here, and I look forward very much to what she writes next -- PHILIP PULLMAN
A fascinating, original and smart adventure tale with a rhythmic prose style that leaps off the page into scintillating life. It has a magic all of its own -- BERNARDINE EVARISTO
This time-travelling tale is a thrilling adventure with brilliant characters. Imaginative, unusual, exciting and funny * * The Week Junior * *
The Infinite is so adventurous that it lit up parts of my brain I didn't know I had. Patience Agbabi has caused a wonderful supernova deep in the literary universe . . . Elle is curious, questioning and fearless. What an inspiration. The future just got so much better -- BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH

Astonishing . . . I can't stop thinking about it, everyone should read it. It's rich and diverse and just brilliant -- FLEUR HITCHCOCK, author of THE BOY WHO FLEW
Elle is an engaging, self-aware character . . . and the environmental theme will strike a chord with young readers * * Guardian * *
Fans of Hayley Long's Sophie Someone will love this imaginative time-travelling caper which follows 12-year-old Leaping Elle. A nail-biting adventure! -- JULIA FORSTER, author of WHAT A WAY TO GO
In this inventive, mind-boggling tale, Agbabi introduces us to Elle - determined, autistic, time-travelling crimefighter - whose voice will charm and astonish readers everywhere -- STEVE TASANE, author of CHILD I
