Jade doesn't know how to cope when her father starts behaving oddly. He sits in a chair all day, staring into space, not even bothering to get dressed - until Jade is too embarrassed to bring her friends home. And then, to cap it all, he wrecks his own shop, makes a scene in the middle ofthe road, and has to be escorted off to hospital by the police. Jade doesn't know how to cope with her father's strange behaviour - and it's only as she comes to understand him better that she can come to terms with what's happening to him.An insightful study of what it's like to have a parent break down, handled with sensitivity and humour.
