Best-selling Jacqueline Wilson has come up with a fresh new title in which she brilliantly handles many of the ingredients for which she is so deservedly popular. Ella’s already struggling with her new stepfather Jack, moving house and the thought of a new baby: at least Mum understands her difficulties and they can share them. But Mum collapses into a coma when baby Sampson is born and Ella has to manage everything on her own. How she and Jack will Mum towards recovery while also picking up the pieces of their life is sharply observed while also movingly and thoughtfully conveying the myriad emotions which Ella goes through as she comes to terms with the changes in her life.
This is a tender and gentle story that will captivate readers of 8+ from bestselling author Jacqueline Wilson. Ella's mum's in a deep coma having just had a new baby. That means Ella has to live with Jack, her hopeless stepfather and cope with her tiny newborn brother, as well as worrying about Mum. The only thing that's going right is her school project. It's all about whales and how they sing out to each other to attract a mate - sometimes for hours. Maybe a whale song could reach Mum, wherever she is, and bring her back to Ella and baby Samson. Surely it's worth a try?
