Anne Fine, prize-winning author and former Children’s Laureate makes her deadly serious and emotionally powerful points about the responsibilities of having a baby lightly within this hugely entertaining story. When the teenagers in 4C are given the Flour Babies project they little know how it will change their lives. To keep a six-pound sack of flour clean, dry and within sight because it represents a baby is a challenge none of them is eager to take on. And they are right to be scared. It proves that having a baby is a responsibility they do not want. And for Simon, it leads to a painful but thoughtful reconsideration of the story of his own father’s departure. ~ Julia Eccleshare Perfect for Reluctant Readers as well as keen readers.
