The Bower Bird, Paperback Book


This title, which won the 2007 Costa award, continues the story of Gussie, a precocious young girl diagnosed with a rare heart condition.

Despite this, she is determined to live life to the fullest, experiencing typical adolescent problems such as love and parent troubles.

While never complaining, she offers a direct and honest insight about herself and the world around her, in a story which is poignant, charming, and oddly optimistic.
