But one day Eva notices that her sister is staring to behave differently and that she seems unwell. Eva wants to help but doesn’t know what to do. So she confides in her friend Jennie who helps her find a way to help her sister. A moving, yet hopeful, account of a family working together to help a loved one recover their health.

    My sister went through that as well so I had that sibling experience and had talked about it to the kids before. They need to know and I think they were old enough for it (6 and 8 years old). Thank you

    It’s so moving & know it will strike a chord with other families. The secret part between sisters was the part I can relate with. You are a special person. Well done my friend. Xx

    As someone who has had to support my family and a younger child cope with a very sick sister. I would recommend this book to anyone who is facing the same stress and challenge. It is clearly written and wonderfully illustrated, so allows access to and, if necessary, discussion of the anxieties and questions that a young person faces but does not always have the words to express. It made me think about the need for wider support that is necessary for those affect by this illness.
