The Lovereading4Kids comment

Interest Age Teen Reading Age 8+ A warm and funny novel that girls in particular who lack confidence will resonate with. Abi is not looking forward to her work experience week at a care home, particularly when she's just had braces put on her teeth and feels even more self-conscious than usual. But as the week goes on Abi finds friends in the residents and before long she is helping them grow old disgracefully and to her surprise giving herself some confidence too. Sita is the bestselling author of the award winning novel, Artichoke Hearts.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 12+

Synopsis

Brace Mouth, False Teeth by Sita Brahmachari

Abi's week goes from bad to worse when she is fitted for braces and then sent to Magnolia Gardens Care Home for her school Work Experience placement. She is shy to begin with, but now she doesn't even seem to be in control of her own mouth, and the placement will mean talking to all sorts of strangers. But then Abi meets Alice, an old lady with a story to tell, and through Alice, Abi too finds her voice.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 12+
