Product Description

Gorgeously emosh. Have man-size tissues handy. Apple’s walk-out mum has suddenly come home. Can they ever be friends again? It’s been eleven years of nothing when Apple’s mother suddenly walks back in the door. Now Apple can finally answer her burning question: why did you go? Unlike Nana, Mum ‘gets’ what being a teenager is like. But just like the stormy Christmas Eve when she left, Mum’s homecoming is bittersweet. Who is really looking after whom? Will Apple ever truly feel whole again? If you’re missing someone. If you’ve lost someone. If you have a broken heart to mend. Or if you loved The Weight of Water. Read this. Sad endings, happy beginnings. Bliss.

Nominated for the Carnegie Medal 2015.
