Description

Two very different boys, one new family, a shared struggle and a big secret. Ryan didn’t want a new mum, let alone a new brother! But when his parents split up and his dad moves in with Naomi, she comes with Tommy – one year older, chucked out of his old school and now joining Ryan’s class. Great. Suddenly sharing a home and a classroom with a complete stranger is a bit much.

Flung together, the two boys clash, but gradually realise that they are more similar than they thought.

Prize-winning Malcolm Duffy’s third novel explores the joys and challenges of dyslexia in a story full of his hallmark heart and humour.

‘Duffy has a talent for imparting serious ideas entertainingly’ Sunday Times Children’s Book of the Week, on Sofa Surfer
