The Book That Made Me: Philip Reeve 16/10/19
Two Weeks with the Queen
When his brother becomes seriously ill with leukaemia, Colin is sent to stay with relatives in England.
Determined to get the best help possible, he decides to approach the Queen, and failing her, the best cancer doctor in the world. Along the way, he strikes up a touching friendship with a gay man whose partner is dying from AIDS.
This incredibly moving tale is interjected with warmth and a lot of humour. A valuable book, particularly for those dealing with the terminal illness of a child.
