My mum went and bought this book for me today as an alternative for an easter egg as I always buy Cathy Cassidy's books because I think they're the best, and I was certaintly not dissapointed.

It was funny at times, and I just kept on wishing things for the characters and hoping things would turn out well for them as the story went along. The relationship between jude and carter is so sweet but I must say this book has made me cry the most I've ever cried whilst reading a book, It's so sad towards the end and it just shows a teenager like me, although families will always be quite embarassing,you can't live without them!

when i read this book i thought it was brilliant. at the time my family were going through some tough times which i was glad to be able to relate to whilst reading this novel. i thought that the story never slowed down and there was always a turn in the road which almost always kept me wanting to carry on reading.
therfore i think that this book is great ;)

I am aged ten and i am an advanced reader.
I found Sundae girl a brilliant book,I couldn't put it down.
However this book could be very upsetting and complicated for younger readers.
The story had wonderful and powerful characters.
My favorite characters were Genovie ,mums boyfriend who runs an ice cream van ,dad an elvis impersonator and most of all Jude an unusual,secretive and shy girl.

Sundae Girl is about a girl named Jude who comes from a broken home. She lives with her mum, granddad and grandma and sees her dad and his new girlfriend: Victoria, on the weekends. Jude's family are far from different and Jude often finds herself hiding her families true characteristics when she is in public. Her dad is an Elvis impersonator who goes to parties dressed in catsuits whilst singing. Her mum is an alcoholic who is chasing broken dreams and tainted promises. Her grandma has Alzheimer's so she seems to forget things and her granddad, is a granddad. Jude often believes she's the only sane person. However after her dad announces he is marrying Victoria, Jude's mother takes a turn for the worse and soon it's not only her own life she's damaging, but Jude's as well. Alongside the family mayhem, Jude has to balance being a kid and having crushes and being an awkward teenager.

Personally, I think this book is hard to critique. There were some really strong points that I adored about this book, however there were also some points which made me feel like the book was flat and almost a little boring. I loved the idea of her mum being an alcoholic and having the perception of Jude battling her mothers addiction in her own life, as this was interesting and real. Also, I loved how the book didn't necessarily have a happy ending when it came to the death of someone, because it just meant that the book wasn't trying to cast out any fairy tale endings or happy ever afters. However, small things in this book seem to make me just feel a little bit odd and makes me feel like the book lacks a few things. There were some factors in the book that weren't really needed and kinda dragged the story on slightly.

Sundae Girl is a great book set in Tile Hill, Coventry. It is about a young girl called Jude who sometimes lives with her mum, sometimes her dad (they're divorced). When she is with her mum, she also lives with her Nan and granddad and her mum's dog, Toto. Toto was named after the dog in "The Wizard of Oz", Jude's mum's favourite film. Jude's mum, called Rose, has an alcohol problem which has just stopped, but starts again in the beginning of the book. She is trying to get out of it and knows that Jude is unhappy about it; so, she tricks Jude by emptying a ginger beer bottle and filling it with whisky.
Her Dad works as an Elvis impersonator and has a girlfriend, Victoria. She likes Jude and Jude likes her too. Overall, her family is pretty embarrassing. At parent's evenings, Jude says that her family isn't hers. She is a good pupil, with good test records, reliable friends and her teachers like her. What has she got to be worried about? She has nothing to hide from her parents, but all the reason to hide her parents from her teachers.
Around the middle of the book, Jude's dad and Victoria get married, and they invite Jude, of course, and Jude's mum, surprisingly. Jude is not happy about this and knows that it is going to end in disaster. They need to go to the wedding on the train as the wedding is in Grete-ne-green in Scotland. When they get to the wedding, Victoria and Rose have a fight. When Jude's mum is in the middle of the fight, she tries to light a cigarette. The lighter flicks and lands on Victoria's wedding vale. It sets on fire. Rose comes to the rescue. She flings it off and tramples on it to put out the flame. That does not go well. Rose and Jude don't stay long at the after-wedding party. Jude dances away but her mum just stays at the bar, drinking miserably.
