'...this poignant and disarming story is full of heart and its crescendo will give you tingles' Attitude Magazine

'Outstanding' Irish Examiner

Sam has known his sister Jessica all his life. Tonight is the first time they're going to meet.

Sam Waver has always been a loner: bullied, struggling at school, with parents who have very little time for him. The one person he has always been able to rely on is his beloved older sibling - but when they announce that they are transitioning, Sam's life is thrown upside down. He's convinced nothing will ever be the same again - but as Sam is about to discover, nothing is more constant than love.

A moving and heartfelt portrait of one family's journey to acceptance, from a master storyteller.

'A story with so much heart that the pages practically pulse. Both funny and moving... this is a must-read for all ages' Irish Independent
