Review quote

"Well targeted at the Jacqueline Wilson/Cathy Cassidy market with strong, believable characters." * The Bookseller * "A non-preachy and wise look at the values of friendship and honesty. Daines tackles some big topics in this book . . . but does it with sensitivity and an understanding of the frailty of human nature." * The Bookbag * "An assured debut full of excellently observed detail of the things that interest older primary children." -- Rosemary Stones * Books for Keeps * "Daines writes a very real story and tackles gritty family issues really well. I loved Lolly, and I hope to hear more from her in future!" * Holt and Askews Library Services * "A gutsy, real-life story." * Julia Eccleshare, LoveReading4Kids *show more
