Summary

Floss's parents are divorced, and she divides up her week, spending five days with her mum, her new step-dad and her baby half-brother. The other two days Floss spends with her dad, helping him to run his greasy spoon cafe. But their simple arrangement is thrown into disarray when Floss's mum decides to move to Australia.

Making the difficult decision to stay at home, Floss moves in permanently with her dad and they muddle along happily together, surviving on chip butties and enjoying visits to the local funfair. But disaster strikes – Dad's money troubles catch up with him and they have to move out of the cafe. They're homeless – but can their new fairground friends help out? Could Dad and Floss be destined for a life on the road?

Candy floss Review?

I gave this book a overall of 3 stars because it’s a very nice book with lots of twists and the characters are all very well developed.
However- I didn’t give it 5 stars because I think the ending is very disappointing, I don’t want to give it away but I expected it to be more about her mum when it wasn’t really.

Good book

My fav animal are cats so I absolutely adored Lucky (the cat) she sounded so cute!! Floss’s so called friend Rihanna has quite an annoying voice but I guess she’s meant to bc she thinks she’s all that. I love Jaqueline Wilson’s books they are really good and definitely recommend u to read them!! Enjoy listening and stay safe!!😷❤️

Cute

The dad daughter relationship in Candyfloss is beauiful. Floss' dedication to her dad is astounding. This story shows there really is a rainbow after a storm. The story starts off a bit slow, but it will leave you not wanting to stop listening.

Good Book

I choose this rating because it is an amazing book and I recommend this book to whoever is struggling with people with mums and dads like this because my mum Helen and my dad are the same so I have already have had this experience I liked it when tiger swallowed the head it was so funny however I didn't like it when Candyfloss had to put up with not seeing her mum for a long time!
