A relatable coming-of-age story for readers aged 12+

Older readers will find much to relate to in this compassionate book by Sarah Hagger-Holt

We love Sarah Hagger-Holt's books - she explores real world issues that tweens and teens will find instantly relatable with humour and empathy.


Thirteen-year-old Aidan can't breathe in his crowded family home. Running is his only respite from four loud sisters and involved, touchy-feely parents. Then his mum makes an announcement: she's having another baby. Only, this time it's not for her; she will be a surrogate for gay couple Justin and Atif.

Aidan is incensed. As if his family wasn't embarrassing - or big - enough already. But he's also scared. Aidan thinks he might be gay, and he's really struggling to accept this possibility. He's definitely not ready to come out, but what if being around Justin and Atif exposes him as gay?

If only he was just like everyone else.

Sarah Hagger-Holt lives with her partner and two daughters in Hertfordshire. She is the author of Proud of Me as well as two adult non-fiction LGBTQ+ books. She has written for the i paper, the Huffington Post, and spoken on Radio 4's Woman's Hour about LGBTQ+ parenting.
