A beautiful, lovely book demonstrating the wonderful links between the very young and the old. Max pours his heart out into a dictaphone having been told by a visiting author that there is a writer in everyone " Mrs Winters didn't look convinced. She's been trying to get Johnny Parsons to write a full sentence for most of year 6". Minnie pours her heart and soul into a diary detailing an event when she was very young that had a profound effect on her. Ghastly and horrific it altered her whole life. The two become unlikely friends from across the street helping one another to overcome their troubles, traumas and worries. Beautifully written,Max is a gem, funny, wise with an old head on young shoulders. Minnie we feel for as to what might have been. This has everything, joy, laughter, sadness, highly recommended.
