But when Dom falls sick with cancer, John’s world falls apart. He and his friends are confused and angry. Eventually, though, they find ways to talk to Dom, and use humour to say the things that adults can’t; they even find support and understanding from an unlikely source – the school bully. A sensitive, realistic look at issues of childhood illness and schoolyard bullying from a thoughtful writer.
