Publisher's Summary

Ten-year-old Jamie Matthews has just moved to the Lake District with his Dad and his teenage sister, Jasmine for a 'Fresh New Start'. Five years ago his sister's twin, Rose, was blown up by a terrorist bomb. His parents are wrecked by their grief, Jasmine turns to piercing, pink hair and stops eating. The family falls apart. But Jamie hasn't cried in all that time. To him Rose is just a distant memory. Jamie is far more interested in his cat, Roger, his birthday Spiderman T-shirt, and in keeping his new friend Sunya a secret from his dad. And in his deep longing and unshakeable belief that his Mum will come back to the family she walked out on months ago. When he sees a TV advert for a talent show, he feels certain that this will change everything and bring them all back together once and for all.

Memorable Listen

Just listened to this audio book read by David Tennant.
What a perfect voice for Jamie the main character in this tale of loss and coming to terms with grief. This moving story also touches on bullying and racism. Touching, adored it from start to finish.

Loved it !!

Beautifully written and narrated. A little gem of a story. Touched on some heavy issues such as grief, abandonment, alcoholism, racial prejudice and family breakdown, but still managed to be uplifting as well as heartbreaking.
