This is one of those laughing and bawling on the same page books. I love all of Nielsen‘s books, but this one made me a life time fan. I‘m in awe of her ability to balance humour and heartbreak.

An easy to read young adult book exploring themes of bullying, family and trauma. Written in the form of a diary, the story follows Henry Larsen as he settles into a new school and deals with life following a traumatic event that has had a serious impact on both his life and his family. I would've liked the story to have explored the rebirth of his relationship with his family more at the end but all in all an engaging read!
