Review by BethDandelion Clocks is a caringly written beautiful story for younger readers It looks candidly at the issue of losing a parent when you re very young and adds into the mix an elder sibling with a developmental disability There s a realism to Westcott s novel which I think would be very helpful for young readers who had or were going through the same thing as Rebecca as it is honest without being brutal.11 year old Liv grows up through the novel and it s a painful thing to see At t Review by BethDandelion Clocks is a caringly written beautiful story for younger readers It looks candidly at the issue of losing a parent when you re very young and adds into the mix an elder sibling with a developmental disability There s a realism to Westcott s novel which I think would be very helpful for young readers who had or were going through the same thing as Rebecca as it is honest without being brutal.11 year old Liv grows up through the novel and it s a painful thing to see At the beginning she s unbelievably embarrassed by her mum who won t let her get her ears pierced but as the novel progresses and we and Liv learn the terrible truth about her mum s terminal illness, she grows impressively but the hallmarks of her young age are still present Her emotions are everywhere, uncontrollable even, and how could blame her It s impossible to read this novel without feeling terribly sad for Liv and her older brother Isaac who has Asperger s Syndrome.Once Liv s mum dies we see her struggle to come to terms with it and managing even the simplest daily tasks become a challenge I can t imagine what losing a parent is like but I can t imagine anyone knows how to handle it very well let alone an 11 year old child This is an emotional read but by the end of the novel I felt content that Liv would be OK and she would make sure Isaac would be too It s the kind of novel every school library should stock When I was asked whether or not I would like to review Dandelion Clocks, I jumped at the chance There seems to be a flood of recent YA books tackling the tough subject that is cancer, and this book is another of those Thankfully, I think that Dandelion Clocks does add something new to this market, and it s something that s definitely worth checking out, especially for those on the younger side of the young adult genre.Dandelion Clocks is a book that is said to

that is cancer, and this book is another of those Thankfully, I think that Dandelion Clocks does add something new to this market, and it s something that s definitely worth checking out, especially for those on the younger side of the young adult genre.Dandelion Clocks is a book that is said to appeal to fans of authors such as Jacqueline Wilson, Cathy Cassidy or Annabel Pitcher With this suggestion, you d assume that it s a book written specifically for middle grade children, and I can easily say that yes it is, but it I would certainly not hesitate to recommend this book to any older teen or even to any adult I was very pleasantly surprised with the complexity that this book had, the author has proven to have such a wonderful ability of reaching across to different age groups Though the content matter is treated so carefully that it s accessible, older readers should also appreciate many of the hidden complexities, including the relationships, in this book.As aforementioned, this is a book that includes manyissues than the main one of cancer Our very realistic and likeable protagonist, Liv, deals with multiple issues in this book and I commend Westcott for managing to handle them all so well, with a great sense of care and authenticity In this novel, another focus is on Liv s brother who has Asperger s Syndrome this was also fascinating to read about because it taught me about the effect of Asperger s on daily life and it was fantastic to see how Liv helped her brother to try understand some things that those with Aspergers find challenging in fact, I d say that this issue is probably rightly explored with the same amount of focus and poignancy as the cancer storyline.What stood out to me most with this book is that it s a real coming of age story for Liv I enjoyed seeing her subtly mature in accordance with the things around her I liked seeing how she dealt with everyday issues, such as friendships at school Most of all I found it interesting to see how her experience shaped her and had an effect on her and helped on the way to forming her identity and maturity For her age, Liv seemed very mature for her age and that is another reason why I believe the older YA fans will like this book.Overall, I was very pleasantly surprised by this Dandelion Clocks I didn t expect to love it as much as I did for age reasons I would have never guessed that this was Westcott s debut novel because quite simply, it is written with such a lot of care and talent If you like the sound of the blurb synopsis of this book, don t hesitate in picking it up, whoever you are I am positive that you ll enjoy it Rebecca Westcott is definitely an author to watch, and I ll definitely pick up her next offering I couldn t put this book down Rebecca Westcott has grasped the eleven year old Olivia Ellis s thoughts and actions perfectly It is, by far, the most realistic and touching book I have read As you read it it makes you laugh and cry It beautifully shows the love between a family especially a mother and daughter and also the problems with friendship and school She has mixed the dreadful illness that is cancer with Aspergers in one story and has created a breath taking story with them It i I couldn t put this book down Rebecca Westcott has grasped the eleven year old Olivia Ellis s thoughts and actions perfectly It is, by far,

friendship and school She has mixed the dreadful illness that is cancer with Aspergers in one story and has created a breath taking story with them It is a different approach to reading about these illnesses as you look at it from a young girl s point of view who has to watch as other people suffer The ending is the perfect way to sum up how the family dealt with the loss and how they moved on but never forgot.Dandelion Clocks is one of my favourite books I loved it
