THE BUBBLE BOY by STEWART FOSTER

Not all superheroes wear capes!

Eleven-year-old Joe can’t remember a life outside of his home, his room, with its beeping machines and view of London’s rooftops. His condition means he’s not allowed outside, not even for a moment, and his few visitors risk bringing life-threatening germs inside his ‘bubble’. But then someone new enters his world and changes it forever.

THE BUBBLE BOY is the story of how Joe spends his days, copes with his loneliness and frustrations, and looks – with superhero-style bravery, curiosity and hope – to a brighter future.
