The Lovereading4Kids comment
CD- Audio. Jacqueline Wilson's storytelling powers are shown at their absolute best yet again in this brilliant story in which Lily must contend with 3 younger siblings while her mother is away with the new boyfriend and her step dad fails to turn up to look after them. How Lily copes or not at times at such a young and tender age is testament to her strength and fortitude and it provides the reader with someone to look up to and possibly even create as a role model. It's proof that being home alone isn't easy particularly when there are younger siblings to contend with and in the back of her mind the fear that the school or social services might find out.
Lily Alone by Jacqueline Wilson
Lily isn't home alone - but she sort of wishes she was; looking after her three younger siblings is a lot of responsibility. When Mum goes off on holiday with her new boyfriend and her stepdad fails to show up, Lily is determined to keep the family together and show they can cope without any grown-ups. But taking care of 6-year-old twins, her 3-year-old sister and the family's flat feels overwhelming and Lily is worried that school or social services might discover their situation and break up the family. What could be better than to take all the little ones for a camping adventure in the park? Plenty of space to run about, no carpet to vacuum, and surely no chance anyone will guess they're there...
Check out the video trailer below to get a taster of what's in store.
A Piece of Passion from the publisher: Lily Alone is a deceptively light tale of a big sister coping with her three siblings after their mother disappears off on holiday with a new boyfriend and the babysitter doesn't turn up. Lily takes the children to hide in the local park - it's an adventure for them but you know it can't end happily... With a heartbreaking but hopeful ending, Lily Alone will leave readers desperate for a sequel, and any girl with younger siblings will be imagining how it would feel to be left in charge of the family.
