Kat Kavanagh is not in love. She has lots of friends, an ordinary job, and she never ever thinks about her past. This is Kat's story. None of it is true. Milo McIntyre loves his mam, the peanut-butter-and-banana muffins at the Funky Banana cafe, and the lifesaving class he does after school. He never thinks about his future, until the day it changes forever. This is Milo's story. All of it is true. And then there is the other story. The one with a twist of fate which somehow brings together a boy from Brighton and a woman in Dublin, and uncovers the truth once and for all. This is the story that's just about to begin . . .

Milo, lifesaver
May 13th, 2015
One of those books that you can't wait to finish, and feel sorry about having reached "the end". The story is told by Milo, a -nearly- 10 year old boy, and Kat, birth mother of Milo's sister. Every one of the characters feels real, 3D; warts and all. Sometimes you want to kick Kat into action (which fortunately her friend Minnie does), and smother Milo in a big hug (just like Kat's broher Ed). And, oh yesss!, for sure you want Milo on your team!
