Rate this:
A deeply touching story for young readers by a very popular author. Sensitively handles the delicate subject of loss and grief. Joely loves to play by the railway, despite her dad's frequent warnings. Her favourite game is to dress up in her fairy outfit and wave at the trains as they speed by. But she won't cross over the railway line - the bridge is far too scary even though it's the quickest way to Gran's house. Joely's going to visit her gran more often because her mum's getting too ill to look after her. Joely keeps wondering what it would be like to be a real fairy, or even an angel - would she be able to fly across the bridge? Would she even know how to make Mum better? A very touching and unusual story from a highly acclaimed author.
