Wink by Rob Harrell
High school, Year 7, everything is meant to be normal, right? But not for Ross Maloy. With a sudden and horrifying diagnosis Ross becomes the ‘cancer kid’. A rare, aggressive eye cancer turns his world upside down and nobody seems to know what to say or how to behave around him anymore. In all the weirdness and heartache, Ross discovers the power of true friendship, laughter and, most importantly, music as medicine.
This is a personal and poignant story of survival based on Rob Harrell’s real-life experience and filled with his cartoons and illustrations. Full of heart and humour, it’s perfect for fans of R.J. Palacio’s Wonder and Samantha Wheeler’s Everything I’ve Never Said.
