Waterstones Says

Flaky friends, pernickety pen-pals and scary school showcases abound in this gently comic and thoroughly endearing debut, which introduces a central character who readers will instantly fall in love with.

Shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2024 Younger Readers Shortlist

Sunshine Simpson's larger-than-life Grandad is always telling her to get out and find her own adventures, but unfortunately BAD LUCK has a habit of coming her way. Her new friend Evie is fast becoming a FRENEMY, her home haircut is a DISASTER, and the school showcase is so STRESSFUL! Everything seems to be going wrong! Especially with Grandad getting older every week.

Sunshine needs to find her voice, but can she break through the clouds to stand tall, stand proud, and show the world she can shine?

MEDIA REVIEWS

A book as warm and radiant as sunshine itself! I loved it. - Lisa Thompson, author of The Goldfish Boy

A beautiful, heartwarming hug of a book about the power of self-acceptance. I defy anyone not to fall in love with Sunshine! - Hannah Gold, author of The Last Bear

Great if you are a fan of Jacqueline Wilson - BBC Radio 4's Front Row

I loved this book, Sunshine entirely lives up to her name in this delightful story that manages to be both sincerely heartfelt and sparklingly funny in equal measure. - L.D. Lapinski, author of The Strangeworlds Travel Agency

I was utterly enthralled by this heartwarming story. Through Sunshine, G.M. Linton has perfectly captured childhood insecurities and wrapped them up in a huge, uplifting hug with a message that says: be yourself; be proud of who you are. I particularly loved the story's celebration of the Windrush generation, the palpable sense of community, and the warmth I felt when reading about Sunshine's wonderful bond with her Grandad Bobby. - Jen Carney, author of The Accidental Diary of B.U.G.

Sunshine lives up to her name - she's charming and hilarious and so is this wonderful debut title. - Aisha Bushby, author of A Pocketful of Stars

This is a very special book and like the warmest hug. I loved Sunshine, her voice is so real and relatable. Her family are gorgeous. The story is filled with heart, humour, joy and sadness. I couldn't stop reading. - Serena Patel, author of the Anisha, Accidental Detective series

This uplifting and charming middle-grade by G.M. Linton is warm and funny. It puts a spotlight on the Windrush generation and has the most wonderful grandpa! You'll love it. - A.M. Dassu, author of Boy Everywhere

Powerful and poignant, it's a celebration of the Windrush generation and the achievements of Black heroes, and it's infused with Caribbean humour, warmth and wisdom...an exciting new voice and one to watch.Every so often I discover a new writer who completely blows me away. This is one of them. I can't tell you how this book made me LAUGH and how it made me CRY. And how I kept thinking just how lucky we all are that books like this exist today. I'm just so in love with this book.When you find something as special as this, you want everyone to read it!so moving, but also hilarious and heartwarmingIt's all so warm and wonderful. - Rashmi Sirdeshpande, author of How To Be Extraordinary

An utterly brilliant book that had me laughing and crying in equal measure. G.M. Linton has created a truly radiant heroine. It is officially a new favourite. - Tolá Okogwu, author of Onyeka and the Academy of the Sun
