Jean Ure brilliantly captures the complex emotions that bind sisters together - and can tear them apart - in this touching and poignant story about the complexities of growing up. Ruby is the oldest of three sisters, and the most responsible. Sometimes those responsibilities seem just too much for her shoulders alone especially when mum, who is bipolar, is not able to cope.
Ruby, Tizz and Sam are sisters. At 12, Ruby is the oldest but with all the stuff she has to worry about right now, sometimes she feels more like the mum of the family.
