As any 12/13 year old will tell you, there’s nothing like a parent to cause you embarrassment. Not only did Skye Green’s parents land her with the worst name in history, her mum is determined to make her life even more awful by – shock horror – going out to have fun at dancing lessons. Skye has the sort of problems familiar to all kids her age – worries over friendships, feeling that the world is against her – and in this diary-style story she shares them all with the reader, who will sympathise with her, laugh at some of the mortifications she endures, but also notice – long before Skye does – that she’s so wrapped up in herself she’s missing some rather important things going on around her. Funny, entertaining, and full of gently delivered home truths. For more contemporary, funny girl-centred stories try Cathy Hopkins, Cathy Cassidy and Karen McCombie. ~ Andrea Reece
Ever since Skye Green's mum started dating 'the man next door', AKA Rob, Skye's life has been turned UPSIDE DOWN. Not only is Rob spending far too much time at Skye's house (and forgetting to do really important things like LOCKING the bathroom door when he is on the loo - CRINGE!), his ANNOYING son, Finn is always hanging around too. If that wasn't enough to cope with, Skye's younger brother has become OBSESSED with the idea of being Dorothy in his school's production of The Wizard of Oz - and won't stop singing to the dog who he's started calling Toto. Just when Skye thinks life can't get any more MORTIFYING, Mum and Rob drop a bombshell. They want to move in together and be a REAL family. Which is OF COURSE when Finn's yoga-loving, art-making, hippie mum decides to come and stay . . .
