“Bon raised his hand as if to say hello to me, but I turned quickly away. I didn’t want anyone to know that we knew each other, much less that we were related.” Kieran wants to be part of the cool group at school. He wants to be on the football team. He wants to fit in. But his cousin Bon is different. Different from any kid Kieran has ever met. And he’s ruining things for him. Why can’t Bon just go away? Which is more important: being popular, or doing the right thing? This is the question internationally award-winning Australian author Simon French asks readers in his latest junior fiction offering, Other Brother. Follow the growing friendship between two young boys as they deal with bullying, homelessness and mental illness, and learn to accept each other’s differences.
