LoveReading View on Jessica's Ghost

Shortlisted for the 2015 Costa Children's Book Award  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 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.
