The Starlings by Vivienne Kelly

When Nicky’s grandmother dies on his eighth birthday he doesn’t know how this is going to affect his whole family. His love of Shakespeare and vocabulary are a disappointment to his football loving father and he turns to his grandfather and his grandmother’s carer, Rose for support.

Complex family dynamics and their fallout are poignantly seen through the eyes of a young boy.
