Summary

A 12-year-old Downs Syndrome girl experiences upheaval as her parents' strawberry farm goes into financial difficulty and her sister comes out as being a lesbian.

Darby loves summer on her family's strawberry farm - but is the weather about to turn?

Darby's favourite things are listening to music - preferably The Beatles - picking strawberries on the farm and spending time with her big sister. She is looking forward to doing all three over the long weekend, but when Kaydee has a friend to stay and the sunshine disappears, everything gets turned on its head.

When the storm clears, will Darby find everything is back to normal, and what is 'normal' anyway?

Told from the POV of a girl with Downs Syndrome.

A warm, uplifting story dealing with an LGBT relationship that Darby is trying to understand.
