Everything changes for Cesca when her mother moves out to be with her new partner, leaving her with her brother and farmer father. Then her father meets someone else, too, and Cesca has to come to terms with a whole new way of life. It is an extremely sensitive, moving handling of issues of first love and parental break-up. It is a brilliantly-drawn relationship between Cesca and her parents. Julia Clarke is an author to watch - her previous teenage novels, "Summertime Blues" and "Between You and Me", have attracted very favourable review coverage.
