    'In Kate de Goldi's sensitive, vital and hilarious novel, Frankie and the reader walk hand in hand through pages that gleam with hope and humour.' Ursula Dubosarsky

    Frankie parsons is twelve going on old man, an apparently sensible, talented boy with a drumbeat of worrying questions steadily gaining volume in his head:Are the smoke alarm batteries flat?Does the cat, and therefore the rest of the family, have worms?Will bird flu strike and ruin life as we know it?Is the Kidney-shaped spot on his chest actually a galloping cancer?Only Ma takes seriously his catalogue of persistent queries. But it is ma who is the cause of the most worrying question of all, the one that Frankie can never bring himself to ask. Then the new girl arrives at school and has questions of her own: relentless, unavoidable questions. So begins the unraveling of Frankie Parsons's carefully controlled world.'A truly special book. Kate de Goldi's dazzling writing will break your heart and make you wonder, marvel and laugh all at once.' Agnes Nieuwenhuizen
