Product description

An injured fawn, a lonely girl, an animal story to make you think. One for all you lucky fans of Gill Lewis and Michael Morpurgo. Kirsty leads a lonely life watching the deer in the hills. She longs to be as free as the deer, but her mum has depression, while her dad is struggling to keep his business afloat. When Kirsty finds an abandoned fawn left to die on the hill, she coaxes him into a shed where he’ll be warm and safe. But as Kirsty battles to keep her rescued fawn a secret, she realises she can’t manage alone. Can the hurt creature show her a way to share her burdens?

“A beautiful story about trust and hope, and how animals can bring people together.” Gill Lewis, author of ‘Sky Hawk’

    i love this book i kind of feel sorry for Kristy cos nobody takes notice of her i hope there’s a nice ending to settle her down a bit i hope she gets help from the farmer cos she is to little to handle it.

    It’s about Katy and she is lost until she finds fawn. The deer is so cute and my violin teacher sings me the song so we can play it. It’s so touching. I was crying when I read it and then I listened to song on youtube. I really enjoyed it.
