The Lovereading4Kids comment

March 2013 Book of the Month Born a twin, Milly has never thought of herself as an individual entity; Lily, her bolder and more entertaining twin, has always been by her side. But after the Incident, everything in Milly’s life changes forever. Encouraged to write a journal to help her recover, Milly backtracks through her life with Lily trying to find a way of living with the space between them. She is also ‘moving on’ in the present with a new school, a new friend and, above all, with the arrival of a gorgeous new boy in her shared house. Penelope Bush tells a dramatic and emotional story balancing pace and depth judiciously.

Synopsis

Me Myself Milly by Penelope Bush

What happened to Milly last summer? She can't talk about it. Instead, she's writing in her journal....About growing up in the shadow of her twin sister, Lily. About the American boy who's moved in upstairs. (There's something he's not telling either.)
Milly can't keep her secret forever . . . can she?

About the Author

Penelope Bush

Penelope Bush trained and worked as a tapestry weaver, but always knew that one day she would write.

She lives in West Sussex with her husband and son and elderly cat. She hides away in an old caravan to do her writing, where the only distraction is the occasional pheasant wandering past. Now and again, the family reclaim the caravan and it is towed down the coast to Dorset, where many happy hours are spent looking for fossils.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
