Clementine and Rudy

By Siobhan Curham

Their poetry and art will change the world.

Rudy is a street artist; Clementine is a poet. The day after Rudy sneaks out late one night and posts her first piece of artwork, Clem discovers it, awestruck. She takes a photo, writes a poem in response and posts them together on Instagram. Soon the two fifteen-year-olds meet and begin their unique friendship, one that nurtures creativity and results in a special creative collaboration. The girls may be from very different backgrounds, and experiencing difficulties at home, but each strives to be true to herself and follow her dreams.

Customer reviews


'A feel good story of friendship and following your dreams.' The Bookseller

'This may seem like a simple, feel-good read for teens, but don't let that fool you. It is so much more. Heartfelt, textural, compelling...this book simply sings.' Fallen Star Stories Blog

'Inspired by the vibrant street art in her home city of Brighton and Hove, this eighth young adult novel by award-winning Siobhan Curham is an uplifting tale … this book was a joy, offering a delightful glimpse of what one of the adult characters describes as an “amazing generation”. Youngsters will hopefully love it, too.' Sussex Life
