Joe was born with a terrible genetic condition where he has no immunity. For 11 years of his life, he has lived on the top floor of a hospital in London with only 1 window overlooking the outside world. To make matters worse, his parents were killed a year or so ago and now he only has the doctors and nurses and his sister Beth for company. On Skype he talks to another bubble boy like himself called Henry who lives in the USA.
His day is dominated by figures Heartbeat, temperature, room temp, oxygen levels, white blood cell counts. But Joe's life is about to change - his sister is off to Scotland to do an internship so he won’t see her everyday, Henry is going to do a walk in a mall protected in a suit made by Nasa and he has a new nurse who seems a bit strange - he believes in aliens, installs 12 Tvs in Joe’s room and hooks up cctv from the hospital as well as 800 plus channels.
A very moving story about isolation and loss and the people who care for the critically ill. ( )
