They're going to be travelling 421 miles all the way from Preston to the very tip of Cornwall. They're hoping to catch a glimpse of the dolphin that regularly visits the harbour there. But is that the only reason they are going? It's a journey that's full of challenges and surprises. Martin adores his brother Charlie but he's not like ordinary kids. He's one in a million. He was born far too early, and ought to have died. And cheeky, irrepressible, utterly unique Charlie is always keeping Martin on his toes - especially on this crazy trip they are now on. Martin is doing his best to be a good big brother, but it's hard when there's something so huge coming once they get to Cornwall ...

MEDIA REVIEWS
A marvellous novel, by turns funny and sad ....an empathetic story of kindness and loss * The Sunday Times *
Yes, this book is emotional but it is also heart warming and has elements of humour thrown in too. The narration of Martin is simply wonderful and I completely fell in love with charming, quirky Charlie, what a lovely little boy * Askews Newsletter *
The style is easy to read, the plot paced beautifully, and yet the book is also emotionally sophisticated. In turns, light and deep, this is an inspiring read * Minerva Reads *
This is a absolute gem of a book and must admit i had tears in my eyes towards the end .This is a story about the bond between siblings and all that entails.I found it so enlightening and endearing to capture a glance into their world. Especially as a mum and a mum to autistic children. Just like Charlie my youngest is more demanding than his elder sister . This is a sweet funny tale that takes you on a emotional adventure.Beautifully written and i look forward to discovering more from this author * Supermum, Where's My Cape *
Powerful and moving, 'Charlie and Me' is a story about love and family. Well worth a read * North Somerset Teachers' Book Award *
Funny, sad but ultimately uplifting, 'Charlie and Me' is a truly special book that I just want to press into the hands of children and encourage them to read * Book Lover Jo *
Mark Lowery has delivered a very special story. Readers will cry with laughter and sadness in equal measure * Books for Keeps *
A heart-warming story of family love and loss, full of humour and heart * WRD Magazine *
A really lovely book * Four Shires Magazine *
It's absolutely hilarious and heart-wrenching in equal measure * Night Resplendent *
By turns funny and sad, this is a wonderful story of loss and hope * Inis Reading Guide *
This novel is sure to please... full of humour, and has an unexpected, heart-stopping finale * The School Librarian *
It's funny for the first half and a little bit sad for the second but the author keeps you on your toes for the whole duration -- Rocco aged 10 * National Geographic Kids *
