In Bloom

by Matthew Crow
£6.99   paperback  Constable and Robinson (2014)

In Bloom by Matthew Crow In Bloom is a bright, funny, painful and refreshing novel about wanting the very best from life, even when life shows you how very bad it can be. It is a story about how to live.
 
Francis Wootton’s first memory is of Kurt Cobain’s death and there have since been other hardships much closer to home. At fifteen, he knows all about loss and rejection, and if he’s honest, Francis – would-be poet, possible intellectual – feels he is wasted in Tyne and Wear.
 
Lower Fifth is supposed to be his time: but when he is diagnosed with leukaemia, a whole new world of worry presents itself. There’s the horror of being held back a year at school, the threat of imminent baldness. But he hadn’t reckoned on meeting Amber and finding a reason to tackle it all – the good the bad and everything in-between – head on.
