LoveReading View on The Worst Thing About My Sister

Best-selling Jacqueline Wilson understands perfectly how the needle sharp jealousy of sisters is matched only by the strength of their underlying affection. Marty and Melissa are not in the least little bit like each other; Marty is a tomboy and Melissa is as girlie as a girl can be. What on earth will happen when they have to share a bedroom? What looks like a disaster turns out surprisingly well as the girls learn just how important they are to one another – despite their differences!

The Worst Thing About My Sister Synopsis

For Marty, having to share her bunk beds and lose her private sanctuary turns out to be the very worst thing about having a sister. But when an accident happens, the sisters realise they are closer than they thought.
