AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Jack's life seems to get more complicated as he gets older, and this year's a doozy. His mum and sister wants to call their new house Sunflower, his friendship with Anna might be turning into something more, and his mum and her partner want to get married! But overshadowing all that, his mum finds out she's sick - and it's going to take all Jack's humour and courage to deal with it. A funny and touching look at the effect of breast cancer on families.' (From the publisher's website.)
