Jelly, aged 11, is popular and great at doing impressions. She’s also overweight. She’s learned to deal with the put-downs by brushing them off and pretending she finds it all very funny – while making up poems and writing her private worries in a notebook. Then Lennon arrives, Mum’s new boyfriend. He’s nice. He’s the first person to have noticed that Jelly is playing a part. When a talent show is announced at school, Lennon persuades Jelly sing her poem in the contest. But can Jelly find the courage to perform something so personal?
