Wow, what a special book this was, I loved it.
11 yr old Jackson has always been NQR (not quite right) His family have resisted putting a label on him but doctors say he has ’neurodiversity’. His family have adapted and accepted his ways, with strict rules but he has trouble making friends. So when he has a play over one Sunday with new friend Digby and then is involved in an incident at school the next day, it has drastic consequences for the whole family.
I must admit that I had trouble reading the first part of the book, especially around the ‘incident’. If I hadn’t chosen to review this book, I may have found it too uncomfortable to go on. I did preserver and I was swept up in Jackson and his family as they try and come to terms with accusations.
It was beautifully written, encompassing diversity, acceptance and loyality.
It left me with such a feeling of happiness and lightness when I finished and I’ve also gone straight to Spotify to get Jackson’s playlist! Thanks for including this at the end.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for a copy to read.
