Suitable from age 6. Recommended from age 9

If it was up to her mother, nine-year old Jo would be at home with a hot-water bottle all day long. But she would much rather spend her time with her film-loving friend at the cinema or flying through the air as a superhero. Her big sister can no longer watch the incurably ill Jo spend her last days in bed and comes up with a plan that will make Jo’s biggest dream come true. She encourages Jo to believe in her own magic powers and, with the help of their town, creates a film within the film. A thrilling story about the power of fantasy and saying farewell. (JF)
