Blog Tour | Rosie Loves Jack by Mel Darbon

Hey, guys!
Welcome to another blog tour!

In today's blog tour we are going to be discussing Mel Darbon's novel "Rosie Loves Jack".

Rosie Loves Jack By Mel Darbon 

9781474937832 | £7.99 | 14+ 6th September 2018

Rosie loves Jack. Jack loves Rosie. So when they're split up, Rosie will do anything to find the boy who makes the sun shine in her head. Even run away from home. Even cross London and travel to Brighton alone, though the trains are cancelled and the snow is falling. Even though any girl might find that hard, let alone a girl with Down's syndrome. See the world through new eyes in this one-in-a-million story about fighting for the freedoms that we often take for granted: independence, tolerance and love.

About the Author

Mel Darbon spent a large part of her childhood inventing stories to keep her autistic brother happy on car journeys. She won’t mention the time spent with him standing by level crossings waiting for the InterCity 125 to go past as she wouldn’t want to be labelled a train spotter. 

Life took her in many different directions working as a theatre designer, a freelance artist, teaching young adults with learning disabilities and running creative workshops for teenage mums, young offenders and toddlers (though not all together).

Mel now writes young adult novels and is a recent graduate of Bath Spa’s MA in Writing For Young People, where she found a channel to give voice to young people who otherwise might not be heard.

When Strangers or Colleagues Have Helped Me

There have been a few times in my life when someone helps me out by holding a door open, or simply helping me out because it is their job to.
I have had random strangers stick up for me when there have been arguments or disagreements. 
Some of my colleagues have even jumped in to help me. If I am on dinner duty, they will chip in and do the washing up, or they will help to cut up vegetables.
Unfortunately a lot of chivalry has died recently, and there are some people who don't appreciate help when given as they feel it makes them look weak and unable to do it. 
I am always helping people carry things, if the work load is too much, I jump on. 
Hopefully it doesn't die completely.

Thank you for reading this post. 
Don't forget to add "Rosie Loves Jack" to your TBR.
A massive thank you to Katarina for letting me be a part of this tour.
Keep smiling, keep reading and be happy!!
Thank you for taking the time to read this =)
