Synopsis

The Girl with the Sunshine Smile by Karen Mccombie

Warm and wise tale about new families. Everyone comments on Meg's sunny smile, and she's put it to good use as a model for her mum's range of bridesmaids' dresses at wedding fairs. It's always been just Meg and Mum, but then Mum meets Danny and is swept off her feet - right onto a grotty old river barge. Soon Meg is discovering the 'joys' of river living in a house full of boys, and there's not much call for her sunshine smile...

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+

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