Synopsis

Odd One Out by Helen Orme, Helen Bird

It's Donna's birthday in a few days, but her parents just can't afford to throw her a big bash. To make matters worse, people are acting strangely around her. Her two older sisters don't want to come to her childish party, and the Sisters don't seem to want to talk about her birthday at all! Has Donna done something wrong? 'Odd One Out' is part of the Siti's Sisters Series, in a set of six light-hearted fiction books designed to have particular appeal to girls. Siti and her friends are four girls who experience all sorts of life issues in this engrossing series. They are ideal for touching the hearts of young girls and always a great read. Each fast moving story is around 1200 - 1500 words in length, with tightly controlled vocabulary and contemporary black and white illustrations throughout to help readers engage and follow the narrative. Published by Ransom Publishing, the books are designed to appeal to reluctant readers aged 10 - 14 with a reading age of 7 - 8 years. There are a further 18 books in the total series.
