EVE by Debbie Roxburgh
Eve has autism and struggles to cope in a world of emotional conflict and family turmoil.
Life is difficult for Eve. Julia, her mother is depressed and regularly ups and leaves whilst her father, Robert struggles to keep the family together. Unable to communicate her feelings of rejection, she builds a 'book wall' in her room which she takes refuge behind when things get too much for her.
Eve's father takes on the role of single parent when her mother fails to return home. He begins to find ways of coping with his daughter's challenging needs and a fragile bond of understanding is formed.
But when Eve spots her mother with another man feelings of rejection come flooding back and all her father's hard work begins to unravel.
