When Willow Farrinton first meets Isaac Silberstein she doesn't know what to expect. He's a gnome-like old man who survived a World War II concentration camp, and she's an almost 14-year-old who's just back at school after a four-month stay in hospital with an eating disorder. He's written a recipe and gardening book, and she has to do a talk on it for school. Birthdays, custard, book reports, gardens, families, friendship and fun all combine in this contemporary, witty and moving book.
