Helen Rutter has a reputation for funny, authentic, touching stories of modern-day young people. Her first book with Barrington Stoke will boost that further.

Lacey is the kind of child that all teachers and children will recognise – smart but disruptive, angry, lonely, a frequent visitor to the head’s office. Written from Lacey’s point of view, we understand the turmoil and problems that make her behave the way she does, and how much she needs the calm and quiet that – to her enormous surprise – is provided by music therapy sessions.

To accommodate its young readers, the plot develops into a campaign to save the piano she plays at the station when the council plan to remove it, but by then they will understand just why the piano is so important to Lacey. It’s a story filled equally with humour and compassion, starring a young person too seldom given a voice in fiction, a feel-good read that is full of truth and insight.
