Wonderfully done, and worth searching out. Most of the book was a very quiet and soothing story about families, with foreshadowing of a tragedy. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact. She is a big fan of the Great Indoors, including crackling fires, warm rugs and lots of candles. It was so soothing that it kept putting me to sleep at night for the past 3 nights , not because I didn't like it, but because I felt so soothed! His mother has since then found another partner, whom Jake thinks of as his dad, as distinct from his run-away father.

A copy that has been read, but remains in clean condition. Next to football and fish, thinking and talking are his favorite things. I loved the clever opening chapters, the wisdom of Mrs Kennedy and the scenes of family life. Everything happened all at once and then suddenly the book was finished.

Something Invisible is Siobhan Parkinson's second book for Puffin and what a well-produced book it is. Siobhán grew up in Galway and Donegal. The spine may show signs of wear. Eleven-year-old Jake is a walking encyclopedia. The book is firmly based in reality, as it evolves to what seems like an inevitable conclusion.

But he's not so sure about everything else - especially girls, or little sisters, or stepdads. I'm really a sucker for good endings and if they're emotional, even better. The story itself returns to territory where Parkinson is so at home and about which she writes so convincingly and engagingly; the territory of relationships between young people. May show signs of minor shelf wear and contain limited notes and highlighting. Obviously, she is not a cross-channel swimmer. Apart from reading and writing, she is very fond of eating and sleeping.

Olivia is pretty sure that Hal's mysterious plan to get rid of his not-quite-stepfather, Alec, is even weirder. 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. Just mentioned this in a comment so figure I should add it to my shelves. Although he's not so sure about everything else--especially girls, or little sisters, or stepdads.

I just expected more from it. Everything is fine until his mum has a baby girl named Daisy. Jake is so self-absorbed he fails to notice his mother is pregnant. In this thoughtfully crafted story, an engaging, overly analytical Irish boy learns the importance of family and friendship. She resides in The Republic of Ireland with her husband Roger Bennett and son Matthew. Pages can include limited notes and highlighting, and the copy can include previous owner inscriptions. But an unlikely friendship with eccentric Stella Daly helps him figure out some of it.

A copy that has been read, but remains in clean condition. I loved the clever opening chapters, the wisdom of Mrs Kennedy and the scenes of family life. This gorgeously written voyage of self-discovery will entrance boys and girls aged 9+. But things don't go quite as either Hal or Olivia expect. She also teaches at Marino Institute of Education, and has held numerous Writers-in-Schools short-term residencies, with a particular emphasis on working with children with special needs.
