Every cloud has a silver lining. Doesn’t it?
Anna is thirteen years old, lives in London with her father, and has Asperger’s syndrome. When her father dies she travels up to the Scottish Central Belt to live with her estranged, reclusive mother. With little support to help her fit in, she must use everything her father taught her – especially her ‘Happy Game’ – to integrate into her new community, connect with her mother, discover her past, and cope with the challenges along the way.
Anna is on the Scottish Book Trust’s ’30 novels to look out for in 2020’ and Books from Scotland’s ‘Who we’re watching in 2020’.
‘Guthrie has an unerring instinct for the darkness that can daunt lives and for the robust spirit of optimism that time and again saves us. Narrated with simplicity and sincerity, the reader will be swept up in the adventures and misadventures of Anna.’
