The Bower Bird

Ann Kelley

Winner of the 2007 Costa award This title continues the story of Gussie, a precocious young girl diagnosed with a rare heart condition. Despite her health problems, she is determined to live life to the fullest, experiencing typical adolescent woes such as love and strained relations with her parents. Never complaining, she offers a direct and honest insight about herself and the world around her, bringing this poignant, charming and oddly optimistic tale to life. REVIEWS Brilliant THE MAIL ON SUNDAY Im pleased to be able to announce that Gussie has lived to see another day with Kelley capturing so beautifully Gussies optimism and hope. SUE BAKERS PERSONAL CHOICE, PUBLISHING NEWS The world of life and death, beauty and truth seen through the eyes of a 12 year old girl. A rare and beautiful book of lasting quality - we felt this is a voice that needs to be heard and read. COSTA AWARD JUDGES Its a lovely book - lyrical, funny, full of wisdom. Gussie is such a dear - such a delight and a wonderful character, bright and sharp and strong, never to be pitied for an instant. HELEN DUNMORE, author of Ingo BACK COVER Gussie is twelve years old, loves animals and wants to be a photographer when she grows up. The only problem is that shes unlikely to ever grown up. I had open heart surgery last year, when I was eleven, and the healing process hasnt finished yet. I now have an amazing scar that cuts me in half almost, as if I have survived a shark attack. Gussie needs a heart and lung transplant, but the donor list is as long as her arm and she cant wait around that long. Gussie has things to do
