Review: From his super special apple tarts to his uncanny ability to sense those in need, there really is no one quite like Oscar. When Oscar turns up missing and presumed dead, it's up to his best friend Meg to sustain the hope that, somehow, Oscar will return. Along the way, Meg learns some of the hard truths of Oscar's life and the series of events that may have led him to his fateful decision. With a painful depiction of bullying and an earnest look at first love, The Apple Tart of Hope is a fast-moving, fresh novel for young readers.
