"A barrier-breaking, empathy-inducing story for all." LoveReading4Kids

I wonder what people would think if they could take the front off our house, like a doll's house, and watch us. All in the same house, but everyone separate. No one talking, but everyone thinking the same thing. Will we ever be a normal family again?

Izzy's family is under the spotlight when her dad comes out as Danielle, a trans woman. Now shy Izzy must face her fears, find her voice, confront the bullies and stand up for her family.

Warm, honest and hopeful, this is a story about the power of family, friendship and being true to yourself.

Review quote

This authentic-feeling book, filled with warm, nuanced characterisation, explores the idea of transition in a gentle, unsensational way. * The Guardian * Gentle and compassionate book * The Times Literary Supplement * Perfectly pitched, this is a timely, gentle and honest story that will inspire conversations and encourage empathy. * BookTrust * A barrier-breaking, empathy-inducing story for all. * LoveReading4Kids * [Hagger-Holt] never lets the book's simple and timeless message - that everyone has the right to be accepted and love as their own, authentic self - eclipse the story. * Teach Primary *
