May 2023 Debut of the Month

GM Linton’s My Name is Sunshine Simpson is an absolute charmer for readers who love seeing themselves in immersive, family-centred stories. Honest and moving, it’s a compassionate character-driven debut that also shares Black history and the legacy of Britain’s Windrush Generation.  

Meet Sunshine Simpson — a character readers are sure to root for and relate to, not least because Sunshine is prone to confidence wobbles, as revealed by her worries around what to do for her school’s special 50th anniversary celebrations.   

Alongside stressing out about the assembly, Sunshine is dealing with fallings-out at school, and sensitive to her family’s secretive whisperings about her grandfather. Glorious Grandad Bobby — a man of mighty wisdom and warmth who loves to share stories about Jamaica and his move to Britain — keeps taking extra naps, leaving Sunshine wondering, “Where had my bodybuilder ox of a granddad gone? Where was Iron Bobby?”   

After being told “this is big people business”, she’s heartbroken when the truth is told, but Grandad’s loving legacy comes to the rescue and sees Sunshine find her voice. In good news, this is the first book in what promises to be a fulsomely joyous series.
