Product description

Jude’s crazy mum and Elvis-impersonating dad aren’t easy to live with. Sometimes, she finds herself longing for just a bit of normality. But when life feels like a trail of broken promises, could a floppy-haired knight on shiny rollerblades swoop to her rescue? A deliciously quirky story of romance and family life from bestselling author Cathy Cassidy.

    It is definitely the saddest book I’ve ever read but one of the best. It is heart warming and breaking and exciting.

    This book is fabulous. Its about a girl called Jude who is shy with a messed up life.Jude’s dad thinks he’s Elvis, her mum has drinking issues. Her mother tells her that she will stop smoking and drinking but her mum says she cant help it and she is on the verge of drinking herself to death, and her Grandma has an illness where she forgets things all the time.She then meets a boy with floppy hair on roller blades, maybe he can help her and her her knight in shining armour…
