Swan Boy by Nikki SheehanLife isn't easy for Johnny. He is trying to help his mum, he is looking after his little brother and he is going to a new school. Then Liam Clarke starts to bully him and it all begins to get a lot worse. But when Johnny gets some very surprising help from an unexpected source his life takes a dramatic turn. A magical story about finding your place and having the courage to fly.
'A complex and beautiful story, though-provoking and well-written'. Carousel 'A moving story about grief, resilience and courage'. Financial Times 'A tender tale of friendship, loss and fitting in - or not...the main character, Johnny, and his younger brother Mojo, will tug at all heartstrings'
'A beautiful and poignant story about friendship, acceptance and loss. Exquisite characterisation and lots of LEAPING.'
'Just finished Swan Boy with a tear in my eye and fireworks in my heart. Tender, funny, wise and just a little bit magical.'
'An incredibly uplifting novel about learning to be yourself. I loved it.'
