Perfectly Ella

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

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Ella is one of four sisters living with their busy teacher Mum in a chaotic but cosy home. Everything would be perfect, if only Dad hadn't had a baby with his new partner, the ice-queen Suvi. Dad's neat new house doesn't feel like home - there's no tv for a start! Ella is starting secondary school so everything is changing and she's not sure where she belongs, either at school or at home. But when her littlest sister Lucy kidnaps baby Kirsti, Ella has to find the runaway pair. Then she realises that everyone is struggling to adapt to their new complicated family set-up.

A touching, funny book about growing up and the challenges of a changing home.
