There are apparently 700,000 young carers in the UK and this sensitively-told, compassionate story puts them in the spotlight. Anna tries hard at school and at home, where things are not easy. Though it’s not directly said, her mother is suffering post-natal depression after the birth of her little brother, who arrived very prematurely. Dad is abroad with work. Anna confides in Timmy her dog, a narrative device that means the reader knows exactly what’s happening and how much Anna is struggling with things, but without any overbearing sense of earnestness. A sub-plot about a school talent show helps keep the tone light and there’s an upbeat ending. This is both engaging and thought-provoking.  ~ Andrea Reece

Matthew Reed, Chief Executive of The Children’s Society, says: ‘Dog Ears provides an important opportunity to raise awareness of the situation young carers up and down the country find themselves in. We hope that young carers themselves who read the book will recognise that they are not alone and that support exists. Being a young carer can have a major emotional impact on somebody’s life. Readers who need support can visit our youngcarer.com website – so we can help them find their local young carer services.’
