This is a heartwarming, funny story of culture clashes ad family love. Basketball-mad Andi was born in Britain: her older brother Bernardo was born in the Philippines and has been waiting for a visa to join his family for years. When the two eventually meet, the possibilities for misunderstanding and conflict are many: language, education, interests, beliefs and even height: Andi is small but her brother is eight foot tall! Candy Gourlay has created a wonderful story, told in alternating first-person sections which vividly create two worlds. It is hard to believe this is her first novel - she is an author to watch.
