I like this book but not the illustrations. The cartoon style doesnt suit the book and readers can imagine things in their heads btw. Its about how a girl is dependent on her sister, then her sister falls out of a tall building and her mum has a baby so now she has to be a big sister. HOwever, all this happened very close to the end and felt a bit rushed. I think that is JW had started with just after Jody dieing with lots of flashbacks it would be a better book. Also, sometimes Pearl the narrator got on my nerves a bit. She doent see all the care her parents give her, just following jody around. When she receives a notebooks for her birthday, she looks at the blank pages and asks where the story is. She's 11 not 3!
Apart from that I liked this a lot. I just wish Peral was not as pathetic.
