Sarah Broadhurst's view...

I donât know whether to start by telling you about the author, the book or the cover for all three are fascinating. Author first: A professional tennis player, she developed rheumatoid arthritis which put her in a wheelchair. She wrote about her courageous battle in A Will to Win. Now she is able to lead a relatively active life. The Book: An extraordinary, sensitive tale about waking up to responsibilities and living a meaningful life as a successful elder sister accepts her Down Syndrome sibling and finds the many sides of love. Warm, uplifting, emotional and very moving. Do read it. The cover: I really donât understand it!

Comparison: Anna Maxted, Cecelia Ahern.

Similar this month: Noelle Harrison, Lorna Landvik.

If you like Alice Peterson you might also like to read books by Erica James, Tess Stimson and Lisa Jewell.

Synopsis

Look The World In The Eye by Alice Peterson

‘Iâve lost my sister. If youâve seen someone who doesnât blend into the crowd,â I sniffle, ‘well thatâs her.â Katie seems to have everything you could wish for - sheâs pretty, successful and has a rich, handsome boyfriend, Sam. But now itâs crunch time. In one week her sister, Bells, is coming to stay and Sam doesnât even know she has a sister. Itâs always been too difficult to bring the topic up. Bells is…different. She just doesnât fit into the perfect world Katie has created.

But that world is about to be turned upside down. Bells pins tatty posters on Sam's pristine white walls, plays Stevie Wonder at full volume, strikes up conversations with strangers - including an attractive man at the supermarket - and creates mayhem. Soon Katie's relationship with Sam is under severe strain and she is forced to confront her past. And problems escalate when Katie receives disturbing news about her mother. But, with help from Bells, Katie finally learns about real love, and that appearances can be very deceptive.

A wonderfully warm-hearted, funny and moving first novel about families, secrets, falling in love and having the courage to look the world in the eye.
