5.0 out of 5 stars highly recommended
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...

2.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful bed-time story book - a little depressing
I enjoyed reading this book but, being a child with divorced parents, I felt slightly edgy about what Jacqueline Wilson wrote. this story is about a girl who has divorced parents and has to move from place to place, sometimes her Mum's, sometimes her Dad's. I felt rather depressed because Jacqueline Wilson made the reason why her Mum and Dad extremely surreal. I had...

This review is from: The Suitcase Kid (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!

This review is from: The Suitcase Kid (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.

This review is from: The Suitcase Kid (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.

The author of this book is amazing. Remember reading it as a child and the books just automatically connect to young girls. Every young girl can relate to these books.
