If you want a book which makes you laugh and cry at the same time, this is it. Alex is 12 and has a brain tumour. He tells his story in typical teenage style as he struggles to understand what is happening to him. With the aid of a friend he tries to solve the mystery of his parents' odd behaviour. Are they getting divorced? And why does his beloved hamster seem thinner? Bursting with humour but you will need tissues at the end.
