The Last Kiss Of The Butterfly by Jill Hucklesby
Jaz is one determined teenager. Whether it's getting that Tae Kwon Do move just right, or investigating the latest cancer treatment to help her mum, giving-up just isn't in her vocabulary. But when her mum announces that she and Jaz will spend the summer staying in a cottage on the marshes, just the two of them, Jaz may have to realise that there are some things she can't control. Away from her friends and urban lifestyle, Jaz struggles, but slowly begins to tune into her environment and embrace her alternative summer. Jaz begins to see her mum differently. She starts to see the other sides to her mum -- as a woman, not just a mother or a wife -- and their relationship and understanding deepens. Jaz's outlook on life changes, as she develops strength and maturity.
