The Lovereading4Kids comment
Rich in atmosphere and stuffed full of fascinating and unusual characters, Ivy is the story of survival. Little Ivy’s childhood has been far from straightforward.
If you enjoyed this do try her next novel Hazel.
Ivy by Julie Hearn
The only beautiful thing in Ivy's drab life is her glorious red hair. At a young age, her locks made her the target of Carroty Kate, a 'skinner'. She recruited Ivy to help her coax wealthy children away from their nannies so that she could strip them of their clothes. It is years before Ivy escapes and finds her way back to her in-laws.
