I’m trying to find a book I read as a child.
It’s about a girl who goes into hospital (I think she has something wrong with her knee) and there meets another young girl with leukaemia. They become good friends and the protagonist goes to visit the other girl for the summer. There’s an island they visit everyday with the girl’s brother and they learn to fish etc.
I know it may sound a bit quaint, but I remember it being really engaging. I think the girl with leukaemia dies in the end.
I thought the title was ‘rainbow island’ or something, but I can’t find it anywhere.
Any help would be very much appreciated!!
