A Friend Like Zilla

by Rachna Gilmore
£2.99   paperback  Second Story Press (1995)

A Friend Like Zilla by Rachna Gilmore Nobby meets the older Zilla when her family goes on holiday. Zilla is developmentally disabled, but much more fun than the average teenager. The friendship grows until Uncle Chad shows up. He is snooty and sometimes unthinkingly cruel to Zilla.
 
Prejudices and attitudes take a surprising turn when Uncle Chad gets hurt during a storm and it is Zilla who generously comes to the rescue.

"This is a brave book. Rachna Gilmore writes from inside the mind of a pre-teen child with unerring confidence ... masterful."
(Quill and Quire)
