Francis Wootton's first memory is of Kurt Cobain's death, and there have since been other hardships much closer to home. At 15 years old he already knows all about loss and rejection - and to top it all off he has a permanently broke big brother, a grandma with selective memory (and very selective social graces) and a mum who's at best an acquired taste. But when he is diagnosed with leukaemia that wide-open future suddenly narrows, and a whole new world of worry presents itself. This book is a bright, funny, painful, and refreshing novel about wanting the very best from life, even when life shows you how very bad it can be
