The M Word
DEPT 51@ EASON TEEN/YOUNG ADULT BOOK OF THE YEAR 2019 – Shortlisted
Maggie Yates tells her best mate Moya everything.
She tells her about Mum losing her job – how Mum’s taken to crying in secret. She even tells her about her foolproof plan to cheer Mum up: find her a fella with cash to splash.
But at the back of her mind Maggie knows that Mum’s crying is more than sadness. That there are no easy fixes. And that she shouldn’t be speaking to Moya any more. Because Moya died months ago.
