Darby loves summer on her family's strawberry farm - but is the weather about to turn?

A UK nomination for IBBY's List of Outstanding Books for Young People with Disabilities 2019
Darby is twelve and has Down's syndrome. Her favourite things are music, chocolate, and her big sister Kaydee. It's nearly time for the annual chocolate hunt, the highlight of Darby's year, but Kaydee has brought a friend home for the weekend. Suddenly both the chocolate hunt and her favourite person are in danger of slipping away... and to make things worse, the family's strawberry farm is hit by a tornado.
When the storm clears, what will be left? And can Darby mend what's been broken when nobody will listen to her?
A warm, thoughtful and empathetic novel from acclaimed author Jo Cotterill.
