Review: Thirteen-year-old Isla is growing up. Her best friend moved away, her father develops a health problem, her grandfather clings to the gruff exterior that hides the hurt from his wife's death, and now she's met the perfect boy - but he's fighting cancer. A love of swans, which binds her and her father, and the appearance of a very special one bring hope to Isla and all those she loves. Set in the UK, this beautifully written book should appeal to both boys and girls.
