Rosie loves Jack. Jack loves Rosie. So when they're separated, Rosie will do anything to find the boy who makes the sun shine in her head. Even run away from home. Even struggle across London and travel to Brighton, though the trains are cancelled and snow is falling. Even though people might think a girl like Rosie could never survive on her own.

"a compelling, grown-up story"

In Mel Darbon’s tense, touching Rosie Loves Jack (Usborne £7.99, 12+), 16-year-old Rose, who has Down’s Syndrome, follows her boyfriend Jack from Henley to Brighton when he is taken away. She is caught up with characters in society’s underworld, some kind, some terrifying. A compelling, grown-up story, set in snowy December.
