Set in urban contemporary Sydney, My Year With Sammy is the complex and poetic story of a memorable child.
‘Parenting and grand-parenting are joumeys without a compass. In My Year with Sammy, Libby Sommer gives us a raw, heart-rending, insightful and intimate story of one family immersed in the messiness of living with a child who is different. This is recommended reading in juxtaposition with the academic and ‘how-to?? material that is on the market. Something beautiful breaks through from the darkness.?? ??" Colleen Keating, author of A Call to Listen
‘Sammy is a wild, stubborn girl who is also endearing and fascinating. This is a compelling story of the challenges and joys of parenting, but at the heart of this book is an unforgettable portrait of a determined and unusual child. I loved this intimate, funny and very moving novel.?? ??" Andy Kissane
‘The strength of Libby Sommer??s work is its engagement with the contemporary mores and sexual manners of urban Australian life. Her Writing is notable for its sensitivity, honesty and humour. She is a chronicler of our times.?? ??" Amanda Lohrey
My Year With Sammy was shortlisted in Seizure??s 2015 Viva Novella Competition and in th U.K.??s 2014 Mslexia Competition.
