    • Abstract:
      Rosie is a sixteen-year-old girl with Down syndrome who's fighting for little freedoms, tolerance, and love.'They can't send you away. What will we do? We need us. I stop your angry, Jack. And you make me strong. You make me Rosie.'Rosie loves Jack. Jack loves Rosie. So, when they're separated, Rosie will do anything to find the boy who makes the sun shine in her head. Even run away from home. Even struggle across London and travel to Brighton, though the trains are canceled, and the snow is falling. Even though some people might think a girl with Down syndrome could never survive on her own.Introducing a strong, determined, and neurodiverse teen protagonist, debut author Mel Darbon gives readers a unique character experience with a much-needed, alternative point of view. This contemporary young adult novel is a voice-driven, heartfelt story of finding your place in a world that often leaves no room for outsiders.
