Alex’s New Year resolution to keep everything simple is made very hard indeed when she’s asked to sing at her head teacher’s wedding. How can she keep such a big thing secret, especially when she hasn’t had time to find a safe place to keep it? How Alex wins through is a cheery, first person story that gets to the heart of all the delights and difficulties around friends, families and school. Other titles by this author include Simone's Letters and her latest Accidental Friends.

Synopsis

Alex's Back by Helena Pielichaty

All Alex wants is a simple life - but do you think that's possible? Not a chance! She's cut down her friends and is just sticking to one best friend, she's cut down on out-of-school activities and is just going to After School Club, but then things start to get complicated again. She's asked to sing at a wedding, which is great - but it's all a big secret. And secrets have a habit of making life really confusing and out of control.

Poor Alex - the only time she really feels calm is when she's having a chat to her dead brother! And her family think that's seriously weird . . .

A funny and lively story that will strike a chord with readers everywhere.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.
