'I want to tell you that he's coming home ... and it's going to be like it was before he went away, before everything broke apart.'

This year she's going to take him with her ... but can we ever return to the way things were?

A novel about love and the things you can and can't change, from the winner of the Victorian's Premier's Literary Award for young adult fiction.

'Highly recommended ... In this delicate, finely balanced tale, Sue Saliba explores grief, loss and the inevitability of change.' Good Reading Magazine

'Saliba's latest book is a beautiful poetic dream of consciousness story of a young girl's love, sadness, resilience and acceptance of the things she cannot change. It is a story about growing up. This is a novel that quietly sings. Highly recommended 13+.' Reading Time- Children's book news and reviews from the Children's Book Council of Australia
