(David Fickling Books)
Francis sits on an unvisited lunchtime, school bench in plain sight, determined to be alone. Neither he, nor the girl who joins him, know why he has this determination, but the realisation of this, and each other, is the start of something altogether different, life enhancing, and necessary. ‘Jessica’s Ghost‘ is an essential book for every growing older reader and his/her parent and teacher.
