AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The powerful story of a young boy whose father develops Alzheimer's disease, from the highly acclaimed author of A Small Madness.

'Foster suddenly recognised the feeling that rolled over him and made him feel sick. It was this: Dad was going away somewhere all on his own. And Foster was already missing him.

'Foster Sumner is seven years old. He likes toy soldiers, tadpole hunting, going to school and the beach. Best of all, he likes listening to his dad's stories.

'But then Foster's dad starts forgetting things. No one is too worried at first. Foster and Dad giggle about it. But the forgetting gets worse. And suddenly no one is laughing anymore.

'A heartbreaking story about what it means to forget and to be forgotten.' (Publication summary)
