The Soup Movement

by Davis, Ben

ISBN: 9780192749239

A thirteen-year-old boy in remission from cancer moves to a new town. When he gets some chips for lunch, he gives the soup his mother had made to a homeless man and so sets in motion a growing trend of acts of kindness. To aid his recovery from a life-threatening illness Ethan and his family move out of the city for a healthy new start. Ethan's getting enough funny looks as the new boy at school as it is, without his Mum giving him homemade soup every day for lunch! But when Ethan meets a homeless man called Harry, and gives him the soup, it is the start of an unlikely friendship. Soon the two of them begin giving soup to the other homeless people around town and when his sister shares their antics on Instagram the #SOUPMOVEMENT begins-they even make it on the news!
