Sam Waver's life has always been pretty quiet. A bit of a loner, he struggles to make friends, and his busy parents often make him feel invisible.

Luckily for Sam, his older brother, Jason, has always been there for him. Sam idolises Jason, who seems to have life sorted - he's kind, popular, amazing at football, and girls are falling over themselves to date him.

But then one evening Jason calls his family together to tell them that he's been struggling with a secret for a long time. A secret which quickly threatens to tear them all apart. His parents don't want to know and Sam simply doesn't understand.

Because what do you do when your brother says he's not your brother at all? That he's actually . . . your sister?

John Boyne made his name with The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas and he's on stellar form in My Brother's Name is Jessica. A sensitively written and timely tale. * Daily Express *
A story with so much heart that the pages practically pulse. A moving, thought-provoking, surprising read - don't miss it! * Sarah Webb, author of the Ask Amy Green series *
Praise for John Boyne: "A novelist at the top of his game" * Mail on Sunday *

“Dangerous and Ill-Informed”

This...is not a good book. I have so many problems with it, from the terribly transphobic title to the terribly transphobic content. It seems to me Boyne released this book without having a single transgender person... More
