The Infinite is the debut children’s novel by poet Patience Agbabi, whose inspiration comes from her autistic son (and her undiagnosed, but complicated late mother).

In a world somewhat like our own, Elle (loves that her name is a palindrome, hates her too-tight cornrows) is a 29 February leapling. She has the gift of time travel; she also has trouble fitting in at the top-secret Intercalary International academy because of her neurodivergence. Safe harbour is to be found on the running track or under tables; both places figure on this time-travel school trip turned quest.
