Chloe doesn't have many friends - none, to be precise. But she's quite happy with her life, until she ends up in hospital with a shattered femur and discovers how much she's been missing out on...

Who would have thought that being run over by a bus could save your life Chloe is the only child of egg-head parents - and she's been home-schooled for years because her parents are sure it's the best way to nurture her 'special talents'. So Chloe feels isolated and doesn't have any friends of her own age. But when Chloe is in an accident and ends up on the children's ward of a hospital, for all of her super-education she realises she's got a lot to learn about real life! And Chloe starts to wonder if her parents determination to keep her at home isn't really just about her 'special talents'...

Katharine McEwen has been illustrating since graduating from Kingston University in 1996. To date she has illustrated around 40 titles and is fortunate to have worked with some fantastic authors, such as Allan Ahlberg, Michael Rosen and Giles Andreae. She is currently embarking on becoming an authorstrator (or should that be illustrauthor?!), but finds the writing part enjoyable, but very tricky!

When not illustrating books, Katharine attempts to throw pots (in a making them way, not an angry way) and is endeavouring to get better at it. She also loves a good movie, rummaging in a junk shops, chin-wagging with her chums and taking photographs.
