Dream cast for YA Fantasy novel A Hero at the End of the World, by Erin Claiborne (AKA eleveninches).

Lin Gengxin as Ewan Mao: Failed to save the world in time. Failed all his exams. Failing to do anything useful with his life.

Sinqua Walls as Oliver Abrams: Saved the world instead of Ewan. Too bloody good at everything.

Natalie Portman as Sophie Stuart: Loyal friend, surrounded by idiots.

Emma Thompson as Lady Louise Gardener Hobbes: Probably a cult-leader; definitely wants to take over the world.

Daniel Sharman as Archie Gardener Hobbes: Crap at being evil.

Read an excerpt from the book!
