Customer Review

on 14 June 2012
The children in `Lemonade Sky' are to be admired for their determination and strength of character especially Ruby the oldest girl who takes control and serves as an example to the others. Ruby manages to maintain values of honesty and integrity throughout whilst facing some very difficult dilemmas as the children have to cope alone for a period without their Mum. Jean Ure handles this situation sensitively, remaining rightly impartial in spite of the circumstances. The characterisations are strong, especially Mrs Bagley upstairs and Cal, Mum's former boyfriend who becomes a welcome visitor. This book may challenge young people to consider how they might respond if they had to face similar dilemmas. Ruby's relationship with her school friend Nina reveals both trust and compassion which helps reinforce the importance and value of true friendship. Each of the children have their own distinct personalities and they face their problems according to their particular age and nature. The children are integral to the book as the story is told almost entirely through each of them. This is a story that reflects reality and the very real dilemmas that families have to face in modern Britain.
