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.
