Publisher: Orion Children's Books

Review

Oscar's apple tarts bring hope to the sad or desperate. He is loved and appreciated for this special gift. Meg is his best friend, but just as their friendship is about to blossom into love she has to go to New Zealand for sixth months.

Oscar's new friend, Paloma, seems to like and understand him, so how is it that his own life starts to become a burden to him? What is making former friends turn against him? Even Meg stops emailing him and his tarts become a joke...Oscar is desperate enough to ride his bike off the end of the pier and into the sea.

Strong characters in a touching story of love, hope and insidious evil.
