This is not my usual genre. I am not a young adult by any means. However the description spoke to me and I am very glad it did. Georgia Springate has captured the emotions of 14 year old Alex as he struggles to come to terms with his sister's cancer. Being of similar age to Alex when my nana died of cancer I could identify with him. Some of the family reactions were similar to my own families. All of the characters are so well described I could imagine them as if they were in front of me. I wish I could have read it in one go but I got to savour it in small doses.
An excellent debut from an excellent writer - there will be more to come and I will be at the front of the queue to read them. Take note of this name - you won't regret it.
