Product description

Think your family are fruitcakes? Meet the Love Children! There’s oh-so-perfect Linn (aged seventeen going on seventy), airy-fairy Rowan, who is always away with the fairies, and space-cadet little brother Tor. Oh yes – and Ally. The normal one. It’s not easy being normal when you live with a bunch of lovable weirdos in a house that’s a cross between an animal hospital and something out of the TV show Changing Rooms. And as if Ally’s family life wasn’t challenging enough, there’s also school – with an urgent history project, and a nasty new girl whom she has been ordered to look after!

    The first book in the series of ‘Ally’s world’ is absolutely amazing! A new girl arrives at Ally’s school and the head teacher asks hers to show her around until she settles in, but for Kyra Davies settling in takes forever and a day. But one day she goes to far, at Ally’s movie party with her friends everyone had arrived and they were ready to start, but who’s at the door? Yep you guessed it.

    Read this book to find out what Ally does with the pesky Kyra Davies and what she and her sisters eventually decide on for her dads birthday present.

    An introduction to all the characters and as you turn each page you feel like you are building up a stronger and stronger bond to each one.

    I strongly recommend this book to girls! 10 out of 10 from me!
