Publisher: Doubleday Children's Books

Review

Marty is an imaginative, untidy tomboy who loves spending time in her room drawing cartoons of her superhero - Mighty Mart. But sometimes she thinks her friends and family would prefer her to be more like her big sister Melissa who is always clean and tidy and loves anything and everything pink and girly.

Marty and Melissa just about manage to get along until they are forced to share a bedroom when Mum needs extra room for her new business. Soon they are fighting every day, and to make things worse, Marty finds herself in trouble at school too. But when Melissa is hurt in an unexpected accident, Marty realises just how much her sister really means to her.

All fans of Jacqueline Wilson's warm-hearted family stories are sure to enjoy this enjoyable tale of the ups and downs of a relationship between two very different sisters, accompanied by Nick Sharratt's much-loved illustrations.
