Biddy Weir is a quirky girl.
Abandoned by her mother as a baby, and with a father who’s not quite equipped for the challenges of modern parenting, Biddy lives in her own little world, happy to pass her time painting by the sea and watching the birds go by. That is, until she meets Alison Flemming.
Because there are a few things about Biddy that aren’t normal, you see. And Alison isn’t afraid to point them out to the world.
All of a sudden, Biddy’s quiet life is thrown into turmoil. If only there was someone to convince her that, actually, everyone’s a little bit weird . . .
When I had read the blurb on the back of this book, I knew I would be reading a very emotional story but I was prepared to read it as bullying is something that I am very aware of. I have been a victim of bullying, never as harsh as the girls were to Biddy who is the main character in the book but to an extent I could relate to Biddy. I felt so sorry for Biddy from what she has to go through but I knew in the end so she would be alright. The relationship she has with her therapist Terri is lovely and I am glad she manages to bring Biddy out of her shell. A beautifully poignant cover.
