Lizzie Zipmouth

(2 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Young Corgi

Although Lizzie is moving into a new home, with a new stepdad and two step-brothers, she wishes things could have stayed the same - just her and her mum together in a flat, before her new stepdad came along.

So she decides that the best way to deal with the situation is to stop speaking. Despite the family's best efforts to get her to say something, Lizzie remains resolutely silent, that is until she meets Great Gran, in whom she finds an unexpected soulmate.

This is a poignant and often funny book, which looks at ways of coping with a new step-family. The friendship between Lizzie and 'Great Gran' is also touchingly portrayed. Ideal for newly confident readers.
