Being Impossible by Hiawyn Oram (Orchard, £5.99 PB)
A new book by the brilliant and versatile Hiawyn Oram is always cause for celebration. Logan is experiencing a family crisis – her mum is in Australia, and her dad, a musical genius, might as well be thousands of miles away too, as he’s so distant and unapproachable. Meanwhile, stern Mrs Everett and her child-hating parrot have moved in to run the household. Logan responds by deciding to become impossible, but then she meets someone truly impossible – a talking cat named Tiff, who can also play the piano. An unusual, warm-hearted book with characters that come alive.
Suitable for: girls; older readers; more able readers
