finn 3 - Copy (2)A boy loses his shoes between heaven and the deep blue sea. In ‘THE UNTHINKABLE SHOES’ Finn Cleary, the ghost of a boy who died on the Titanic, remains earthbound as a girl’s invisible childhood companion in order to find his shoes, and please his mother.


[ Yes, those are definitely my shoes, there in the museum case. Who would have thought I’d be famous for my shoes. And such a sad pair as that. I wore them the day I stepped onto the Titanic and the day I floated free of it, April 15, 1912.

     I’m not sure if I was five or almost six when it happened, but after I drowned I discovered that time is an inexact measurement. Time raced ahead of me, pulling me backwards and spun me around so I met myself arriving. Even now, after a century, it continues to fling me forward, years speeding past me until I come to a full stop without my growing an inch or aging a single day.]

*Fictional characters were inspired by a museum exhibit of a pair of baby shoes belonging to the unidentified child from RMS Titanic.
