The Lovereading4Kids comment

A beautiful and brilliant story of the endearing love and friendship of two sisters, which fans of Cathy Cassidy and Jacqueline Wilson will love. 12 year old Izzy is quiet, contemplative and has always adored her charismatic, confident 17 year old sister, Alex. But when Alex starts going out with a new boyfriend, everything changes and that sisterly bond is in jeopardy. This is a beautifully written and highly accomplished novel from the author of Dandelion Clocks which, like Violet Ink, will have you hanging on every word.

reader reviews

A small number of our readers were lucky enough to read and review Rebecca's first book, Dandelion's a taster....'This was a brilliant book and I loved every second of it. I couldn't put it down for even a minute. It was brilliantly told and I'd recommend it for sure.' Rosa Boran.
