Jamie’s dead sister is nothing but ash, yet she rules his whole family. Is there life after loss? Please, is there? Five years ago, Jamie’s sister, Rose, was blown up by a terrorist bomb. It’s been five years of grief. Now Jamie, Dad and his teenage sister are moving to the Lake District for a fresh start. But things are just as bad as ever. Jasmine, who was Rose’s twin, has turned to piercings and punk hairstyles. Mum has run off with a man from her support group. But to ten-year-old Jamie, Rose is just a distant memory. He’s more interested in his cat and his Spider-Man T-shirt. What he wants is for Mum to come home, and for his family to start living again. Could a TV talent show make it happen?
