Sarah Broadhurst's view...

She knew she shouldnât befriend the hurting boy but memories of her own pain and his obvious need for help places her, as head teacher, in an ideal position to ‘interfereâ. What she finds is a hurting Dad too. This is such a lovely tale of bereavement and tender understanding lightly handled in a charming, flowing, witty style.

Comparison: Robyn Sisman, Jill Mansell, Anna Maxted.
Similar this month: Alice Peterson, Noelle Harrison.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

Wild about Harry by Daisy Jordan

Headteacher Holly Connors is pinching herself. Dream job, dream life and the dreamiest fiancé (her wedding to whom is mere months away). But dreamers often find themselves rudely awakened, and Holly is – by one tousle-haired pupil, Harry Meadows, who's been being going off the rails since his mum died. Holly knows he's hurting and she knows about loss, so before she can say the words 'professional detachment', she's made the ten year old's happiness her number one priority, despite knowing it'll disturb a few ghosts of her own. It's easier to understand the child if you look at the parent, and Harry's dad, Will, seems more feckless than most. Heâs grieving too, if heâd only admit it, but seems determined to deal with his loss by himself. Mostly, it seems by disappearing off to work, leaving Harry with a string of au pairs.

Despite Willâs insistence that it's none of her business, Hollyâs sense of responsibility towards Harry means that she canât just walk away. But when professional detachment turns into emotional investment, Holly begins to worry; is this just about Harry? Or should she be taking a closer look at herself?
