Surviving school with one eye open.
Ross Maloy just wants to fit in. But after he is diagnosed with a rare eye cancer in Year Seven, he suddenly becomes the ‘cancer kid’ of his school. Now he has to deal with weird hats, a squinty eye and – hardest of all – disappearing friends, social media bullies, and the threat of losing his eyesight … or worse.
Based on Rob Harrell’s real-life experiences, and packed with his cartoons and illustrations, this is a heartbreaking and hilarious story of survival, and of finding the music, magic and laughter in all of life’s weirdness.
