“A really impressive, nuanced debut looking at how to cope with and survive life.” Fiona Noble of the Bookseller
“This extremely readable novel lays bare the emotions of friendship and family, as well as exploring the impact of nature on our urban lives, and the ways in which we can find hope and confidence in ourselves.” Minerva Reads
“A dramatic and inspirational story that gives the reader a shiny beacon of hope, even in the bleakest of times.” Mr Ripley’s Enchanted Books
“Moving and emotionally highly charged, this is a haunting story that will stay with you long after the last page is read.” Parents in Touch
“A heart-breaking yet hopeful tale of grief, friendships lost and found, a family in the grip of depression and a little swan fighting for survival. Ewa Jozefkowicz’s story paints a beautifully poignant tale of the loneliness, isolation and fear that guilt can bring, and the need to accept help when it seems like the hardest thing to do.” Nicki Cleveland, Miss Cleveland’s Reads
“The book paints a convincing picture of a harrowing time in a young life … by no means a gloomy read, offering ample humour, hope and optimism.” Book Trust, who have chosen it as a Bookmark Book of the Month for May.
“This is an authentically told story that poignantly portrays life during dark times for twelve-year-old Izzy… Powerful feelings are handled in a compassionate way, characters are authentically nuanced and the plot is compelling.” Books for Topics
