A heart-warming novel for readers aged 8+

Young readers will find much to relate to in this story that explores the thoughts and feelings of children affected by dementia.

We're often asked to recommend books for children with family members experiencing dementia - here is a middle grade novel that explores the subject beautifully. The story is sensitively told, with humour, witty dialogue and characters that young readers will find immediately relatable.


Twelve-year-old Luca Verani has his future all mapped out: who needs school when he's going to take over his family's ice cream cafe? But then his aunt announces she's selling the struggling business and Luca realises that his nonna's memory is disappearing. Plus, he's starting high school and one of his best friends Sitara is being targeted by racist bullies. As Luca's worries pile up, will his dreams melt away?

Lindsay Littleson is an award-winning middle-grade author from Glasgow, Scotland. Her books include Carnegie-nominated Guardians of the Wild Unicorns, The Secrets of the Last Merfolk and Kelpies Prize-winning The Mixed-Up Summer of Lily McLean, which was also longlisted for the Waterstones Children's Books Prize. Inspired by many happy years as a primary teacher, Lindsay's books have been praised for their believable characters and authentic dialogue. She currently lives in Renfrewshire, Scotland.
