5.0 out of 5 stars highly recommended 24 Mar 2006
By Laura K
Format:Paperback
I chose to review this book as part of my children's literature project and found myself unable to put it down! The structure is somewhat unusual (though clever) as each chapter takes the reader through the alphabet ('A is for...Andrea'...etc). This may be quite intriguing for young readers, encouraging them to finish the book and discover what each letter stands for in Andrea's life. When approaching the content, some readers may feel the book paints a negative picture of step families, though i must say I don't agree. It simply outlines how difficult it can be to adjust and I am certain that young readers will find the book helpful. While many will be able to relate to the character 'Andrea' (the 'suitcase kid', whose parents have divorced), the story may also help children unfamilliar with divorce to understand what friends may be going through.
Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Suitcase kid - superb 24 May 2006
Format:Paperback
Brilliant, the book is about Andy and the upheavals in her family due to her parents splitting up. The book is well written and is easy to read. It deals with a very serious matter in a gentle and constructive manner. Even though the story is a sad one it does end on a happy note - a very enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful... 28 Mar 2006
By Miss VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I read this book over and over when I was younger. It's a fantastic story about Andy, a young girl who is trying to cope with her parents' divorce, and her irritating new stepfamilies. It's brilliantly written and the emotions and thoughts of Andy are so realistic. Anyone who has felt out of place in their own home will understand immediately the feelings Andy has.
As well as being realistic and helpful, this book is also really funny and very easy to read. It's not at all preachy. Not just for children coping with divorce, this is a great book in its own right.
It will definitely appeal to anyone who has had trouble dealing with the things life throws at them, and who has ever felt that the only world which won't disappoint them is the one they create in their imagination. Heartwarming, enjoyable and at times tearjerking, this book is a refuge from all the people who don't understand you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazed Jacqueline Wilson fan!!! 22 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I've read most of Jacqueline Wilsons books and this book would be one of my favourites! I really enjoyed this book because you knew Andy felt bad and annoyed. She would feel angry and feel sorry for herself, but we would hear her thoughtsand you could imagineher every move! I loved the discription of the characters, in Andy's viewher parents were innocent, it was Bill the Baboon's fault and Carrie's fault. The only person Andy understood was Raddish her toy rabbit. She didn't understand why her Mum and Dad didn't want to live together in Mullbery Cottage. She didn't know why Katie was such a brat. She was confused. I advise everyone who likes Jacqueline Wilson's books to read this!!!
