The Lovereading4Kids comment

Shortlisted for the 2015 Costa Children's Book Award - Chosen as one of the Top Ten Best New Books for Children 2015 by Andrea Reece. Francis is a bit of an outsider and doesn’t really have friends. But he finds it really easy to talk to Jessica. They’ve got lots in common and are firm friends within hours of meeting. It doesn’t really matter to either that Jessica’s a ghost. Funny, clever, beautifully written this wonderful book shows how quickly life can change so that it can appear impossible one moment, be full of hope and possibilities the next. Everyone should read it! ~ Andrea Reece

“Funny, clever, beautifully written – it perfectly describes the transforming power of friendship.” Costa Children's Book Award Judges

About the Author

Andrew Norriss

Andrew Norriss was born in 1947, went to Trinity College, Dublin, and then became a school teacher because a woman called Mrs Morrison told him to. In 1982, another woman told him he should be a writer, so he did that instead, partly because of the money, but mostly because it means you can watch movies in the afternoon.

He lives in a thatched cottage in a little Hampshire village with a loving wife and two wonderful children, and life would be pretty near perfect if he could just get rid of the moles on the lawn, and his son didn’t leave marmalade dribbling down the side of the jar so that it stuck on your fingers when you picked it up in the morning.
