'I loved every single heartbreaking word. REALLY well done' LOUISE JENSEN, author of The Family
Finn and Kaz are about to meet for the first time...
Ten-year-old Finn, a quirky, sensitive boy who talks a lot and only eats at cafes with a 5-star hygiene rating, is having a tough time at school and home.
Outspoken Kaz, 59, who has an acerbic sense of humour and a heart of gold, is working at the cafe when Finn and his mum come in.
They don't know it yet, but the second time they meet will be a moment which changes both of their lives forever . . .

I tore through it, alternating between rage and pain. In particular, Kaz (and Terry's) situation is explored with forensic authenticity - Linda has centred the experience of people so often treated as marginal in fiction * Shelley Harris, author of VIGILANTE *
Such a beautiful, careful, thoughtful, gorgeously-observed story, where the characters pulsated off the page. And oh, the finale... A breathtaking moment where I think my heart stopped. I cried and cried * Louise Beech, author of CALL ME STAR GIRL *
I loved every single sensitively written and heartbreaking word! REALLY well done * Louise Jensen, author of THE FAMILY *
