A teenager looking after his mum with MS and his younger brother must deal with the emotional impact of the fact that his mum wants him to help her end her life.
Who is Bobby Seed? He's just your average sixteen-year-old - same wants, same fears, same hang-ups. Dull, dull, dull.
But then there's the Bobby Seed who's a world away from average. The Bobby Seed who has to wipe his mum's backside, sponge her clean three times a week, try to soothe her pain. The Bobby Seed whose job it is to provide for his younger brother, Danny, to rub his back when he's stressed and can only groan and rock instead of speak.
That's Bobby Seed. Same, same, same, yet different, different, different...

Engaging, authentic characters facing some really big issues make for a compelling read. Plenty for discussion but also a moving and rewarding story. Great stuff.
