Mika and Max

By Laura Bloom

**eBook Edition** A story about a girl who meets a boy who changes everything

Mika is a girl growing out of her clothes and approaching womanhood with the expectations of her mother weighing firmly upon her shoulders and a love of music that transcends the strict classical lessons imposed on her. With a brother and sister who have ganged up on her, she is looking for a way to escape and find her own voice. Mika and Max form a strong bond that is inspirational and heartwarming.

  • 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
