Gleitzman, Morris, 1953–. ISBN 978 0 330 4 26220. So why did I get this once-in-a-lifetime book? During the twenty years since Two Weeks with the Queen was published, I’ve often been asked where the story came from. While words like genius and unique talent sometimes try to escape my lips, the truth is I don’t know. It. ’s not autobiographical. Neither of my own younger siblings was ever diagnosed with a terminal childhood illness. Consequently I’ve never crossed the globe and tried to break into Buckingham Palace to borrow the Queen’s family doctor. Stories are rarely what they seem to be at first glance.

Dori
A very funny book dealing with some pretty heavy issues (AIDS and terminal cancer) from a tween's point of view. Colin (the hero) initially vehemently refuses to accept his younger brother's terminal cancer, and thinks that if he just asks the Queen for help she'll surely send her best physician to cure his brother. Sent to stay in London with relatives (who bear a more-than-passing resemblance to Harry Potter's Dursley relatives) so as to avoid the painful end, Colin learns to accept his brother's imminent death - through unsuccessful attempts to break into Buckingham Palace and befriending a gay man whose partner is dying of AIDS - and that death is less traumatic when you have loved ones with you.

The humorous situations Colin gets himself into, and his childlike disregard of the conventions which hedge adults' behaviour with restrictions, lighten the heavy topics and make this book both a good read and a powerfully reassuring story for tweens struggling with similar issues.

The main Character in this book is a sad, and confused, passionate, young adolescent boy with a big heart and the determination that his younger brother is not going to die of cancer. But no one will listen to him. So when his parents send him from their home in Australia to stay with unknown relatives in England he rejoices in his chance to tell The Queen that she must send her best Dr. right away. He knows she will because he has seen how kind and caring she is in her Television broadcasts. Of course, he finds out life doesn't give you some of your most intensely believed in dreams, and the people who you think will care sometimes don't. But then Colin, our hero, meets someone who other people call "a queen" and this heartbroken young man listens, and talks, and shares Colin's pain as his own partner is in the final stages of AIDS.

This book deals well with disappointed hopes, and prejudice and fear and the discovery that even when life is at its worst, there will be people to help, if you can just look at who is around you without seeing your expectations instead of who they really are. A good book for middle grades but also for everyone.

This book is a very sad and smart book. It is amazing to see how some people look e love their family so much. It is also very sad but I learnt a bit about cancer as well. But their was a lot of spelling mistakes.

Colin's parents don't know how to explain what's going on with his brother. He was too sick too eat their Christmas dinner, and Colin quickly learns there is a more serious problem. That problem is called cancer, and
this Australian family and their doctors can do nothing to save the boy. Colin's parents decide that he would be better off in London, with his Aunt and Uncle where he won't have to see his brother suffer. Colin disagrees, but he knows that if he can get to London, maybe the Queen will send her best doctor to cure his brother.
After a couple of thwarted trips to Buckingham Palace and a trip to the finest hospital in London, Colin is feeling a bit useless. No one seems to want to help his brother. Then he meets a new friend,Griff,who helps him to understand the importance of being with the person you love when they are ill. Griff teaches Colin through example, as his partner suffers from cancer and the AIDS virus. Learning about relationships and the importance of supporting those you love helps Colin to accept his brother's forthcoming death. Colin realizes that the way he can most help his brother is by goin home to be by his side till the end.

I must have read TWO WEEKS WITH THE QUEEN about 6 years ago now (I was about 10) and where I might have forgotten details of the plot and the names of some of the characters it's still a book that I remember and love.

It has a strong, charismatic and honest main character (Colin) that's little brother is currently dying of cancer. He is sent away to England, as his parents think it will be less stressful than watching his brother die. Colin resolves to find the Queen's own doctor and cure his little brother. On the way he meets a gay man who's lover is also dying. A strong friendship begins as they each face the worst.

It's a story with relationships, love, death, prejudice, terminal diseases and hope. Told with humour and honesty through the eyes of a young boy just trying to save his brother.

A must read for anyone.

Colin isn't having a very good year. Sent to visit relatives in England because his brother has been diagnosed with cancer, he hatches a plan to list the help of the Queen of England. He is certain that she can help him find a doctor who will cure his brother. Needless to say, enlisting the help of royalty is a difficult task. It isn't until he has failed to break into Buckingham Palace and begins to haunt the corridors of hospitals looking for someone who can help him find a cure that he gets the help he needs. The "help" does not come from a physician, but from a man he finds sobbing in the street for his friend who is dying of AIDS. In the relationship that forms between this unlikely pair, Colin discovers that being there for his brother is more important than any cure and that Queens are not always royalty.
