“The day it all began, it felt like lightning had hit our house…”
Ollie is drowning. No one notices.
Oliver Campbell, fourteen, fanciful and funny in equal measure, struggles to unravel the knots of emotion when his little sister, Lily, falls gravely ill with a mysterious disease. Irritating and puzzling to his two older half-brothers, neglected by his self-absorbed mum and dad, and unfallen in love with by Poppy Teasdale, he longs to be something more than invisible.
Quirky Kamal doesn’t think it’s weird that Ollie, his best friend, is fascinated by words and plants; he knows what it’s like to be different and to be bullied; he coaches him on love, and how to clinch his dream-girl; he tickles him with his high-falutin language and aspirations; he impresses him with his fortitude despite a tragic past; he is there when his life takes a terrible turn; he is loyal to the end.
Ollie’s two special people throw him life jackets, but will they be enough to save him?
From a large Catholic musical family, I studied French, music and English at A-level, in a girls’ grammar school in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in north-east England. I ventured far south… to Manchester, where I took a degree in French with Drama at the University there. I’ve been a French teacher, actor, Deaf teacher, piano teacher and now writer/teacher. I wrote a play, ‘Touched’, for Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which gained 5* reviews. I’m currently writing my second novel – a sequel to the first, ‘If Everyone Knew Every Plant And Tree’. I’ve lived in twenty-one different places, including Philly and LA, and I currently flit between Falmouth, Cornwall and London. Apart from writing and teaching, I love a spot of singing!
