Win a weekend trip to New York and a signed copy of The Summer of Impossible Things

To celebrate the paperback of Rowan Coleman's wonderful The Summer of Impossible Things, one reader and a friend will win the trip of a lifetime – a visit to the book's incredible setting... Brooklyn, New York!

We've teamed up with our friends at Ebury Press to give away return flights for two to New York, a three-night stay in NU Hotel Brooklyn, with breakfast included. What's more, you'll both be treated a five course meal and cocktails at the renowned Battersby Brooklyn!

How far would you go to save the person you love? Luna is about to do everything she can to save her mother's life. Even if it means sacrificing her own.

Explore the exciting backdrop to Luna's story of family, courage, sacrifice and love in all its guises.
