Product Description

“Hi! I’m Charlie (Don’t call me Charlotte – ever!). History is boring, right? Wrong! The Victorians weren’t all deadly dull and drippy. Lottie certainly isn’t.”

For a school history project, Charlie starts writing the diary of Lottie, a Victorian serving girl. Lottie shares Charlie’s real name, Charlotte, and is also eleven, but that’s where the similarities seem to end. Unlike Charlie, Lottie has to work to help her mum support their big, poor family. It seems a million miles from Charlie’s life – until Mum loses her job. Suddenly Charlie sees how much she can learn from Lottie’s hardships and struggles. For a start, Lottie would definitely know what to do about Mum’s dreadful boyfriend and his wimpy son! Jacqueline Wilson delivers another winner with this thought-provoking tale of two girls who share similar problems but live in different times.

    This book is GREAT! Jacqueline Wilson tells the story of Charlie a girl who doesn’t like school an especially History. But when she starts a project about the Victorians she can relate to things in her troubled life to Lottie a Victorian maid that Charlie’s based her project around. This book is epic and anyone age 10 and over should read it!

    I found the Lottie project a fantastic read. Once I got started I couldn’t put it down.It was recommended tome by my teacher. On the outside it looks boring but when you start reading it is fascinating. It is all about a girl called Charlie who does a school project on a Victorian girl called Lottie.

    I have to admit this isn’t one of Jacqueline wilson’s best books she’s ever read but it is worth reading!! It is quite easy to read so you can be any age to read this book, probably more 7-15, but it’s perfect if you are doing the Victorians, like me when I was reading it, it really helps you actually and it makes learning fun!

    This book is about a girl called Lottie (she hates to be called Charlotte), for her Victorian project at school she decides to do a diary about a girl called Charlotte and what it’s like to be her and how hard it is to live. But when Lottie’s mum looses her job, Lottie realises how hard it is to live…...

    Enjoy!! Xx

    Like all Jacky books, I loved the lottie project because it combined two things I enjoy. History and english. I just love the way it’s written, half Lottie and half charlotte, and how utterly rewarding this book shows hard work to be. It’s not always about quantity, it’s about quality, and good friends come in all shapes and sizes. Those are the lessons I learnt from this book, which I am uuberly grateful for! :D

    Interesting book, but slightly confusing as it switches between Victorian Lottie and Modern day Lottie. It is factual, but doesn’t feel like learning! Very good book!

    The Lottie Project was a good book, but I was a bit stricken because Jacqueline Wilson was a bit rude this time, but all the same, it was a book worth reading, I loved the style of Lottie and the GAB girls, I thought Lisa was a wet cookie but Lottie, or Charlotte aka Charlie was the BEST charachter in the book. Thumbs up!

Lottie shares Charlie’s real name, Charlotte, and is also eleven, but that’s where the similarities seem to end. Unlike Charlie, Lottie has to go out and work, and help her mum to raise their big, poor family. It seems a million miles from Charlie’s life – until Mum loses her job. Suddenly, Charlie realises how much she can learn from Lottie’s hardships and struggles. For a start, Lottie would definitely know what to do about Mum’s dreadful boyfriend and his wimpy son! Jacqueline Wilson delivers another winner with this thought-provoking tale of two girls who live in different times, but share similar problems.

    Cool book! My nan got me this from the local charity shop. I didn’t know what to expect – but as soon as I’d read the first page it bowled me over! Amazing!
