“Filled to the brim with joy… beautiful, heart-wrenching and very funny.” ★★★★ Time Out London
You’re seven years old.
Mum’s in hospital.
Dad says she’s ‘done something stupid’.
She finds it hard to be happy.
You start a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Everything worth living for.
You leave it on her pillow.
You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling.
