The diary of an irrepressible girl learning to deal with friendship, grief and growing up, perfect for fans of Jacqueline Wilson. Harry Christmas and Angie Moon are best friends and almost-twins. Ever since they were born two days apart they’ve been partners in cloud-spotting, sweet-eating and treehouse-building. But when Harry is taken to hospital for headaches that won’t go away, he needs Angie more than ever. Because when things fall apart, only a best friend can stitch them back together. Told through Angie's lively diary, this is a bittersweet story about friendship and growing up.


Well, what can I say? I’m an absolutely broken and emotional wreck after just finishing this...😭💔 Such a touching and poignant story about courage, loyalty and love in the face of adversity...☁️☁️☁️☁️


This reminded me of when I was younger; keeping a diary. I liked how this story was woven together, with different thing a to learn from it. Very emotional but beautifully written.


Loved it. Lots to think about & tied together a variety of different threads; friendship, illness, diaries, letters, prison camp in WW2. Fiction for top KS2/KS3 Loved the name Harry Christmas! Would definitely recommend as a good read.


So emotional towards the end - a story about true friendship and the range of emotions we go through during difficult times but from a child's perspective. Excellent for PSHE lessons to discuss friendship, consequences, secrets, War and warfare and illnesses.
