"Accomplished, masterful, humorous, heartbreaking" KIRKUS REVIEWS
"What a lovely book this is! ... a sweet, sad, funny, honest story... a wonderful insight into the heart, mind and feelings of a 15 year old boy and how he processes and deals with what is, and what he thinks is, going on in his life, particularly with his mum... Author is masterful at creating a fully realized setting for all scenes...It's wonderful."
Ollie is drowning. No one notices.
When his sister falls gravely ill, he struggles to unravel the knots of emotion. Irritating & puzzling to his two half-brothers, neglected by his parents, unfalleninlovewith by Poppy Teasdale, he may as well be invisible.
Quirky Kamal doesn’t think it’s weird that Ollie, his best friend, is fascinated by words and plants; he knows what it’s like to be different and to be bullied; he impresses him with his fortitude despite a tragic past; he is there when his life takes a terrible turn.
Ollie’s two special people throw him life jackets. Will they be enough to save him…?
