Shortlisted for the Young Minds Award 2008.

New place, new school and new friends to make - and all doubly if your parents called you 'Flower Power'. Luckily she has her songs to help her deal with all this change. This is a lovely book following Flower in her journey as she discovers herself and the beautiful singing voice she has waiting to be discovered.


Singing It by Anne Cottringer

Flower Power has always moved around. She meets Cat - who shares her interest in tigers. But Cat can become very distant, particularly over boy friends. Flower finds that the only way that she can deal with it all is to sing her songs, and her old favourites - but will she ever find the courage to sing with such strength?


Topical and trendy ... Teenagers will love it. School Librarian a sweet, distinctly girly book, and none the worst for that. Carousel
