Heather Collins, Scottish Book Trust Children's and Learning Audience Development Co-ordinator, says: "Simon lost his brother in the tsunami in Thailand in December 2004 and this is his account of that tragic incident, his family’s grief and his journey to find peace and happiness again. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that has moved me so much. Whilst parts of it are incredibly sad there’s also a strong feeling of hope. I think everyone should read it, particularly anyone with a brother, I imagine it would mean even more to them."
