The Lovereading4Kids comment
How spirited Katy Carr adapts her character when she has a terrible accident that leaves her unable to walk is a classic story with a strong moral message. Until she falls from the swing, twelve-year-old Katy has enjoyed a tomboy existence despite being in constant trouble especially from her Aunt Izzie who is in charge of Katy and her younger siblings. After the fall, Katy is bedridden. Never previously one to sit still, Katy is sure she will not be able to bear the inactivity. But the accident changes her. Helped by all her family and friends she first just survives but later, propelled by her fearsome determination, she manages to get back on her feet. Katy’s story is genuinely touching.
Jacqueline Wilson has written a modern re-imagining of a 21 century Katy inspired by the classic novel What Katy Did.
What Katy Did by Susan Coolidge
Katy Carr intends to be beautiful and beloved and as sweet as an angel one day. For now, though, her hair is forever in a tangle, her dress is always torn and she doesn't care at all for being called 'good'. But then a terrible accident happens and Katy must find the courage to remember her daydreams and the delightful plans she once schemed; for when she is grown up she wants to do something grand...
