Meet Jess the Goth Fairy’s family.

Jess loves her nan so much, but recently she’s been unwell and this makes Jess very sad. With the help of Dr Paul, Jess begins to understand the changes in her nan and realises she’s still the same on the inside!

Jess Hiles, the inspiration for the book, has achieved so much in her life but it has not always been easy as she is disabled. Recently Jess’ own nan suffered with dementia and she found this very difficult. Jess hopes this book will help everyone (able and disabled) understand a little more about dementia and realise that it is okay to be different as we are all the same inside.
