Best-selling Jacqueline Wilson captures a welter of emotions in this heart-rending story of how Ella copes when her mother is in a coma. Ella doesn’t like much about her life – especially her step-father Jack, her new home far away from her friends or the thought of her mother having a new baby. But, when the baby is born and things go so wrong for her mother, Ella learns courage and kindness and that some things – especially having a step dad - are better than she had thought. In this story, Jacqueline Wilson brilliantly handles many of the ingredients for which she is so deservedly popular.
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?
