She’s totally fed up with having to join a new family and nothing can coax her into speaking to them, not football, not pizza, not even a new bedroom.
That is, until she meets a member of the new family who is even more stubborn than her – and has had a lot more practice!
A funny, fantastic story about a young girl trying to come to terms with her parents’ divorce and her new step-family, from bestselling, multi-award-winning author Jacqueline Wilson.
Jacqueline Wilson has been entertaining audiences with her unique brand of writing for many years, and has established herself as one of the leading children’s authors of her generation. Mixing humour with darker, more poignant moments, she has demonstrated time and time again that she’s unafraid to tackle some of the real issues that affect children today in a way with which they can identify. In this compelling story we meet Lizzie, a young girl who won’t speak to anyone.
Lizzie is a quiet girl. She doesn’t want to talk to her mum, her dad or even her new step-siblings, despite their best efforts to get something out of her. For Lizzie this is just her way of coping with the stress and upheaval of having to get to know her new family, but it inevitably ends up doing more harm than good.
To Lizzie’s surprise, it turns out that she isn’t the only quiet member of the family after she meets her new step-great grandmother, who she ends up having more in common with than she thought. However when tragedy strikes it’s down to Lizzie to help the family pull through. Is she up to the task? Read by Sophie Aldred, this captivating story is available to buy as a CD audiobook.
