Life is tough for Flora ("Floss") Barnes. First of all, her parents are divorced-her mum lives with Floss's stepdad Steve and cute baby half-brother Tiger in a beautiful apartment, while Floss's dad lives alone in his beloved greasy little café, a place that Floss adores. But when Floss's mum announces that she, Steve, and Tiger are moving to Australia because of Steve's job promotion, Floss in stuck smack-dab in the middle of an extremely hard situation. Should she stay home in England with her wonderful-but-lonely dad or go to Australia with her loving mum? And that's not Floss's only trouble-she's still deciding if she REALLY wants to be friends with popular but sometimes nasty Rhiannon, although Floss really wants to be friends with the quiet new girl Susan. And on top of all of this, it looks like Floss's dad might lose the café! Jacqueline Wilson's amazing novel will appeal to readers ages 8-11 who want to read a beautiful, funny, and sincere story about a girl that everyone can relate to! A five-star story indeed.
