Review

At odds with her strict new teacher, and concerned that her unmarried mother is falling for the divorced father of the little boy she childminds, Charlie's life becomes increasingly stressful. She throws herself into a school project, writing a fictional diary of Lottie, a young Victorian nanny whose problematic life draws many parallels with her own. This is a humorous, touching story, particularly useful for those coming to terms with the idea of a potential stepfamily.
