Note from Franticmommy: I can’t even begin to tell you how refreshing and exciting it is to see a diverse chapter/YA book that features the bravery and courage of a teenage girl whose superpower is Downs Syndrome. Kudos to the authors and publisher for producing an accurate, sensitive, and entertaining read.

About the Author: Mel Darbon spent a large part of her childhood inventing stories to keep her autistic brother happy on car journeys. She won’t mention the time spent with him standing by level crossings waiting for the InterCity 125 to go past, as she wouldn’t want to be labeled a trainspotter. Life took her in many different directions working as a theatre designer and freelance artist, as well as teaching young adults with learning disabilities and running creative workshops for teenage mums. She moved to Bath in 2014 with her husband and their dog, Alfie. Rosie Loves Jack is her debut book.

I’d like to see more deaf & hard of hearing characters in YA stories.
