An intriguing, compelling and moving new novel from the award-winning author of Finding Violet Park. When the good-looking boy with the gentle voice presses the dropped negative into Rowan's hand, she's sure it's all a big mistake. But next moment he's gone, lost in the crowd of bustling shoppers. And she can't afford to lose her place in the checkout queue - after all, if she doesn't take the groceries home, nobody else will. Rowan has more responsibilities than most girls her age. These days, she pretty much looks after her little sister single-handedly - which doesn't leave much time for friends or fun. So when she finds out that Bee from school saw the whole thing, it piques her curiosity. Who was the mysterious stranger? Why was he so insistent that the negative belonged to Rowan? Bee invites Rowan to her house where they make a print of the negative. And the face that appears in front of Rowan's eyes is that of her dead brother Jack...

Praise for Jenny Valentine: 'Valentine has the essential storyteller's gift of making you want to read on - and to know more even after the book is finished.' Guardian 'The award-winning Valentine has a keen eye for the idiosyncrasies of young children, and the rhythms of family life.' The Bookseller '[Valentine] has a wonderful ability to take readers right into the hearts and souls of her central characters, and reading her is always a truly vicarious experience.' The Bookbag Praise for Broken Soup "...a life-affirming, witty, romantic read, about freedom, responsibility and love." - Sunday Times, Culture 'delicately written ... A solid tale of what it takes to grow up and how to ask for help.' Publishers Weekly "Valentine's appeal lies in conveying life and hope." - The Times "...a very funny and sad story about what really makes a family, and how we can lose our common sense in times of crisis and find it again through love." - The Daily Mail "Beautifully written and emotionally sure, this is unputdownable and should keep even the most moany teenager quiet until it's finished." - The Independent

Övrig information

Jenny Valentine moved house every two years when she was growing up. She has just moved house again, probably not for the last time. She worked in a wholefood shop in Primrose Hill for fifteen years where she met many extraordinary people and sold more organic loaves than there are words in her first novel, Finding Violet Park. She has also worked as a teaching assistant and a jewellery maker. She studied English Literature at Goldsmiths College, which almost put her off reading but not quite. Jenny is married to a singer/songwriter and has two children.
