The Apple Tart of Hope by Sarah Moore Fitzgerald
Oscar’s apple tarts bring hope and he is loved and appreciated for this special gift. Meg is his best friend, but just as their friendship is about to blossom into love she has to go to New Zealand for sixth months. Oscar’s new friend, Paloma, seems to like and understand him, so how is it that his own life starts to become a burden to him? What is making former friends turn against him? Even Meg stops emailing him and his tarts become a joke. Is Oscar is desperate enough to ride his bike off the end of the pier and into the sea? Surrounded by grief and confusion, Meg and Stevie (Oscar’s little brother) are determined to find out what happened to Oscar, and together they learn about loyalty and friendship and the power of never giving up hope!
This amazing book is filled with strong characters in a touching story of love, hope and insidious evil.
