'Stuff happens sometimes.

'Everyday stuff.

'At school, at home, with sport, with mates.

'For Ethan it happened when he thought his best friend didn't like him anymore.

'Ethan is not just bookish - he's book-obsessed, possibly the only boy with a mother begging him to put a book down so he can make friends. Ethan doesn't make friends so easily so he when he does make friends with Trent (they bond over a dinosaur book), Ethan is chuffed and his mum is thrilled. But then Trent discovers downball and Ethan thinks he's lost his best friend, his only friend . . .' (Publication summary)
