Summary

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...

Critic reviews

"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)

Wow

A beloved childhood story of mine. I loved this storyline and especially the inner monologue of Andy. I loved all the interesting and vibrant characters. The narrator also really brought Andy to life. This is by far one of my favourites by Jacqueline Wilson.

suitcase kid

this is a 5🌟 book anyone who brought this book made the right choice and so will you if you get it . It's all about a young girl whose parents got a divorce so she has to move between the houses one with a mean step sister another with her dads unborn child so over all things are not going well for Andy (the girls name)
