Flightsend

Publisher: David Fickling Books

Could moving to a remote, ramshackle cottage in the middle of nowhere really mark the start of a new life and draw a line under the tragedy of recent months?

Kathy certainly thinks so and that's what really worries her daughter Charlie.

What if things don't work out? What if things get worse rather than better? And what is Charlie going to do with herself, stuck out in the countryside miles from school, friends and social life?

Charlie has so many questions and worries but the move to Flightsend brings with it more than she had ever expected.

Characters are presented with senitivity and empathy so that readers will have no trouble immersing themselves in this voyage of self discovery.

A thoughtful and intelligent book that addresses many issues facing today's teenagers.
