Synopsis

Funny and tender, My Big Mouth, Steven Camden's brilliant first novel for readers of 8 and over, is about storytelling, lies, friendship, family and the currency of cool.

‘They think I’m cool.’
Dom’s face wrinkled up, ‘Who does? Who cares?’
But I did. I cared.

When Dad leaves, ten-year-old Jay has questions.
Where has he gone?
Why did he go?

When no one can give Jay the answers he needs, he makes up his own stories, setting off a chain reaction that sees regular old Jay go from just another face in the crowd, to the centre of attention.

But being the coolest kid in school comes at a cost. And as things spiral out of control, can the most unlikely person help him learn the most important lesson of all?
