Description

Jake likes thinking, talking, football and encyclopedias. And fish. But he's not so sure about everything else - especially girls, or little sisters, or stepdads. And most of all, he's not sure if he really likes himself. Then Jake meets a girl called Stella and old Mrs Kennedy next door, and he begins to find that he likes a lot more things than he thought. After all, as Mrs Kennedy says: Life isn't a bowl of cherries, but a bowl of cherries is still a bowl of cherries. But it takes a tragedy to force Jake to look at himself and see that, really, he isn't so bad after all.

About Siobhan Parkinson

Siobhan Parkinson is one of Ireland's leading authors for children and teenagers, and she has won numerous awards for her writing. Her books have been translated into many languages, from Danish to Thai - even ones where they translate your name as well as your book, so somewhere in Central Europe are books by a person called eivena Parkinsona. She is joint editor of Bookbird, an international journal on children's literature, and when she is not writing stories or pretending to be eivena Parkinsona, she visits schools and works with children on their writing projects. Siobhan lives in Dublin with her husband and grown-up son.
