‘Outstanding’ Irish Examiner

Sam has known his sister Jessica all his life. Tonight is the first time they’re going to meet.

Sam Waver has always been a loner: bullied, struggling at school, with parents who have very little time for him. The one person he has always been able to rely on is his beloved older sibling – but when they announce that they are transitioning, Sam’s life is thrown upside down. He’s convinced nothing will ever be the same again – but as Sam is about to discover, nothing is more constant than love.

A moving and heartfelt portrait of one family’s journey to acceptance, from a master storyteller.

‘A story with so much heart that the pages practically pulse. Both funny and moving… this is a must-read for all ages’ Irish Independent
