Mika and Max

By Laura Bloom

A story about a girl who meets a boy who changes everything.

When 13-year-old Mika is forced to attend a music festival with her family, she resigns herself to hippies, heat, and embarrassment. But nothing could prepare her for Max, who’s almost 10 and has autism. When the two of them join forces, a series of unexpected and life changing events unfolds.

  • For Middle-Grade readers who like emotional, inspirational and uplifting stories about characters that they can connect with.
  • For fans of Judy Blume and "Wonder" by R.J. Palacio.
  • "Mika and Max are two of my favourite new characters in fiction, and their friendship is vivid and real. Told with an exquisitely light touch and a profound sensitivity, this is a lovely, riveting, important story – often heartwarming, sometimes heart-stopping – about family, friendship, growing up, taking risks and finding ourselves through connections." – Jaclyn Moriarty
