Find out what our reviewer, Ellen, thought of ‘Sundae Girl’ by Cathy Cassidy:
Don’t miss the chance to have your say! We’re looking for parents to get involved and give their feedback on all aspects of family life. Find out more here.
Jude Reilly loves her family, even if they are a bit bonkers! Mostly, Jude just has to worry about her dad embarrassing her in front of her friends or her mum wearing inappropriate clothes. But when Jude’s mum starts drinking things suddenly become serious and she struggles to cope.
Join Jude and her crazy family as she attempts to persuade her mum to give up the drink and get her life back on track. And it always helps to have a boy in rollerblades just a phone call away!
This is a nice book but maybe not the best if you’re looking for a very intense read.
The plot is a little predictable at times but the characters are lovable and fun. A nice girly read.
Recommended age group: 10 – 13
