This is the fourth book I have read by Fiona Higgins and my favourite to date . I love when an authors books get more original with each book and this novel is an example of an author fine tuning her craft . The story of Jackson (who is nuerodiverse) and Julia (his mother )is told from alternate viewpoints snd revolves around an false accusation made about Jackson and the fallout from this . Highly recommended !
This delightful book centres around Jackson, who is a lovable and unusual boy, but readers are invited to meet his parents, siblings, grandparents, teachers, friends and others. Ms Higgins' new novel is about love, joy, hope, kindness, compassion and resilience. I would give six stars if I possibly could.
Such a breath of fresh air,no zombies or serial killers.Just real people with real problems,muddling through life with lots of love. Jackson is an amazing child,that i think a lot of parents could relate too in different degrees. I really enjoyed this book and read it all in one go.
To all the parents who have a child who rocks the world of quirky, and even those that don’t give this book a read. It makes you realise that all children, just need love, understanding and that no ones child is “normal” they just are.. For parents we are not alone in managing the many quirks our children throw our way and yep it’s ok not to get it, just love them quirks and all...
This story shows how much the world needs tolerance and acceptance. Something every parent needs to teach their children.......along with responsibility. The 2 different perspectives was a master stroke.
An inspirational journey of compassion and unconditional love, with tears, heartache and joy in abundance. This story reminds us all too stop and really listen to what our loved ones might really be trying to tell us.
We forget and don't see the struggles of family life when there is a family member who is a little different. Fantastic account from the perspective of a family and how they deal with the curve balls life offers.
