The Lovereading4Kids comment

Interest Age Teen Reading Age 8+ Award-winning Sally Nicholls tenderly captures the loneliness of two girls without families as they share their experiences of being outsiders. Clare’s been in foster care for most of her life; she likes her foster mother Lyn but hates being bullied at school. After a horrible day there, she meets Maddy who lives in a children’s home. Like Clare, Maddy is 14 and the two girls seem to have much in common. But who is Maddy? Sally Nicholls deftly adds a surprising twist.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 12+

Synopsis

Shadow Girl by Sally Nicholls

Clare knows she's at least partly to blame for her problems at school, but she's learned that it hurts to make friends when you're a foster kid and you'll just be moved on again. It's a relief to meet Maddy, who knows exactly what it's like to be in the system. But then Maddy disappears. Clare has opened her heart at last, and she can't let it go - will she find her friend?

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 12+

About the Author

Sally Nicholls

I was born in Stockton-on-Tees, just after midnight, in a thunderstorm. My father died when I was two, and my brother Ian and I were brought up my mother. I always wanted to write - when people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I used to say "I'm going to be a writer" - very definite.

I went to two secondary schools - a little Quaker school in North Yorkshire (where it was so cold that thick woolly jumpers were part of the school uniform) and a big comprehensive. I was very lonely at the little school, but I made friends at the comprehensive and got on all right. I didn't like being a teenager very much, though.

I now live in a little house in Oxford, writing stories, and trying to believe my luck.
