About this deal
She succeeds at including a range of grown up issues into Children’s stories and making them easy to understand. This is a nice quick read for anyone who wants to enjoy some of Jacqueline Wilson’s smaller works, whether you are rereading them or younger readers discovering them for the first time.
This tale of a young girl coming to terms with her parents' divorce and her new identity as a stepchild is a mini-masterpiece. She’s completely fed up with having to join a new family, and nothing can convince her to speak to them.

The only thing I would have liked to have seen more of is helping Great Gran ‘find her voice again’ as this is only covered in a few lines.Ketika Lizzie dan Mamanya pindah ke rumah ayah barunya , Lizzie mengunci mulutnya sehingga dua saudara tirinya menjulukinya Lizzie Zipmouth. The other Jacqueline Wilson books still seem a bit grown up for her yet but she enjoyed this as Lizzie loved all grandmas dolls ! The book is all about a young girl that keeps having to join new families and meet new people as her mum gets a new partner.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. As Lizzie is unsure how friendly her new step dad is as previously having some bad ones, she takes to not speaking a word, until she meets Great Gran. One of the reasons I remember liking her books so much was because she tackled ‘grown-up’ issues about the trials and trepidations of becoming a teenager, as well as the worries and mixture of hormonal feelings we all remember going through. There is nothing wrong with liking what you like, though I think Jake is expected to grow out of playing with stuffed toys.i'd have loved for more insight into lizzie's silence as a trauma response and how her gran helps her through it! I would recommend it for 12 or 13 year-old non-native speakers and it's definitely only a book girls would like to read. Lizzie, using Great-Gran's phrases and back-chats, manages to snap Great-Gran out of her ill trance. page 15 (Lizzie is talking about her youngest stepbrother, Jake, who plays with thirteen Beanie Babies and likes tea parties and knitting).
lizzies mom gets married to a bloke lizzie does not like and does not make a good impression so she decides not to tal any more will she ever talk? wholesome :) i'm sad its one of her shorter books bc it's obviously quite underdeveloped and lacking in detail.
Many youngsters will relate to the story of Floss, who loves both her parents dearly and desperately wants them to get back together.
