Jessica's Ghost

'Do you have any idea,' Jessica said eventually, 'why you can see me, when no one else can?'

'A wonderful novel for young readers; which tackles a difficult subject with the perfect mix of empathy and humour.

Francis has never had a friend like Jessica before. She's the first person he's ever met who can make him feel completely himself. Jessica has never had a friend like Francis before. Not just because he's someone to laugh with every day - but because he's the first person who has ever been able to see her - Jessica's Ghost is a funny, moving and beautiful book by a master storyteller, about the power of friendship to shine a warm light into dark places.'
