Rose and Windy have spent the summer together “forever”, and they share all those questions that mark the beginning of adolescence.

But this year, for the first time, they realise that the small age gap that separates them may be enough for their interests to be out of sync. While Windy remains the same as always, Rose begins to grow an interest in the movements of a group of slightly older kids whose lives are really quite dramatic… This will be a summer that neither of them will forget.

In This one summer, the two cousins Jillian and Mariko Tamaki (illustration and text, respectively) present us with a vibrant and moving book about the end of childhood, the start of the teen years and the pain that always comes from growing up.

The debut of a graphic novel in the collection for older readers. And what a debut! …

This one summer is a true masterpiece by Canadian cousins Jillian and Mariko Tamaki that has been amassing awards galore.

Recommended for readers from 13 years on.

 

This book is part of the 2 Steps and a Leap collection.
