Five years ago, Jamie’s sister, Rose, was blown up by a terrorist bomb. Five years later, his family is still wrecked by 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 ten-year-old Jamie hasn’t cried the entire time. To him, Rose is just a distant memory. Jamie longs for Mum to come home, and for his family finally to start living. And when he sees an advert for a TV talent show, he feels certain it will bring them all back together…
