Ten-year-old Jamie hasn’t cried since it happened. He knows he should have – Jasmine cried, Mum
cried, Dad still cries. Roger didn’t, but then he is just a cat and didn’t know Rose that well, really.
Everyone kept saying it would get better with time, but that’s just one of those lies that grown-ups
tell in awkward situations. Five years on, it’s worse than ever: dad drinks, Mum’s gone and Jamie’s
left with questions that he must answer for himself.
This is his story, an unflinchingly real yet heart-warming account of a young boy’s struggle to make
sense of the loss that tore his family apart.
