My Deal with the Universe by Deborah Kerbel


My Deal with the Universe by Deborah Kerbel

The year I stopped growing was the year Jack started to get better. Grappa’s the only person in the world who’s ever heard this story. Problem is, he didn’t believe me.

“That’s just a coincidence, Crazy Daisy,” he said. “You being short has nothing to do with Jack. The universe doesn’t make deals with little kids.”

But it happened. It did, I feel it in my bones. I saved Jack’s life three years ago.

Daisy Fisher just wants to be normal, but growing up in a house known as the “Jungle” makes that impossible. It doesn’t help when the neighbours declare your family public enemy number one. Or when your best friend leaves for camp and forgets you exist. Or when your twin brother may be getting sick again….

Just when it feels like Daisy’s deal with the universe is unravelling, she finds out that love and strength can come from surprising places… and that maybe “normal” isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
