Other Brother

By Simon French

From the award-winning author of Cannily, Cannily and Change the Locks.

Bon raised his hand as if to say hello to me, but I turned quickly away. I didn’t want anyone to know that we knew each other, much less that we were related. Kieran wants to be part of the cool group at school. He wants to be on the football team. He wants to fit in. But his cousin Bon is different. Different from any kid Kieran has ever met. And he’s ruining things for him. Why can’t Bon just go away?
