When my parents split up they didn't know what to do with me ...
My family always lived at Mulberry Cottage. Mum, Dad, me - and Radish, my Sylvanian rabbit. But now Mum lives with Bill the Baboon and his three kids. Dad lives with Carrie and her twins. And where do I live? I live out of a suitcase. One week with Mum's new family, one week with Dad's.
It's as easy as A B C. That's what everyone says. But all I want is to go home - back to Mulberry Cottage...

"Gripping, funny and sensitively written." (The Independent on Sunday)
"A modern story, realistic with lots of witty, offbeat humour." (The Daily Telegraph,)
"A witty and moving tale of divorce." (The Times)
"A deeply moving account of a child's agony and bewilderment as she suffers from her parents' divorce. Feelings tumble out in a cascade of experiences, at once painful and funny. Language is racy and modern, superbly capturing the experience of many children today." (Junior Education)
I was absolutely enchanted by the main character's mascot Radish who is a little rabbit who she makes tiny clothes for and takes on adventures.
Tracy Beaker, also by Jaqueline Wilson, about a young girl going through difficult times.
I really enjoyed her narration of the book. She has a great voice.
You really feel for the girl especially when it seems all the adults are not listening to her properly or caring enough about how everything is affecting her.
