My Big Mouth

book | Fiction | May 2020
World English → Macmillan (Ed. Sarah Hughes and Gaby Morgan)

Ten-year-old Jay discovers the difference between lying and storytelling when an impulsive lie at school gets out of hand in Steven Camden’s funny and moving first novel for middle-grade readers.

When Dad leaves, ten-year-old Jay has questions.

Where has he gone?
Why did he go?

When the answers Jay gets aren’t enough, he starts to make 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, the most unlikely person helps him learn the most important lesson of all.
