The Lovereading4Kids comment

Interest Age 8-12 Reading Age 8 Lucky Dixie gets to do work experience at the offices of her favourite teen magazine Candy. But it turns out to be a massive disappointment: instead of meeting models and pop stars, she’s the office slave, making cups of tea all day. Most disappointing though is meeting the magazine’s Agony Aunt, who is nothing like the tell-me-anything type Dixie is expecting, in fact she gets Dixie to write replies to the letters for her. But something good, and totally unexpected, does come out of the experience. A funny, lively story that cleverly answers a question frequently asked on problem pages.

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

Synopsis

Candy Girl by Karen Mccombie

Heartfelt, girl-friendly title that is perfect for tweens. A gorgeous new look for the warm and witty tale from Karen McCombie.

Dixie's landed a dream work experience placement at Candy magazine. But rather than interviewing celebs and mingling with models, Dixie spends all her time making tea! And then the problem page editor makes her read all the letters from readers. Worse still, Dixie finds a letter from her own sister. What will she do?

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