Binny for Short
Longlisted for the Carnegie Medal 2014
Lovely, fresh writing by the creator of the beloved Casson Family. A funny, moving look at family, loss and hope. You’ll adore the breezy seaside setting. Life has been tough since Binny’s father died and her dreadful old Aunt Violet got rid of her beloved dog, Max. Her world changed to a city flat with hardly enough space for Mum and the rest of them. But then Aunt Violet dies, leaving a small cottage in Cornwall to Binny and her family. It feels like a second chance at life. Sunshine and freedom beckon. But is Max forever lost in the past?
