  1. Penny

    Fabulously warm hearted and indulgent, a great tale about friendship, overcoming fears and feelings of depression and sadness. How communities can come together to unite and create a sense of belonging.

  2. Sarah Thomas

    A wonderfully uplifting, ‘you can do it!’ read.
    Beautifully written with warmth, humour and a real sense of wanting to belong. Highly recommend.
