My Sister Jodie
Pearl and Jodie are like chalk and cheese. Pearl is quiet and cautious. Jodie is brash and bold and bad – and Pearl adores her. But when their parents get new jobs as a cook and caretaker at a fusty old boarding school, the sisters have to move… and everything starts to change.
Jodie has always been the leader – but now it’s Pearl who’s making new friends. Pearl fits in with the posh teenagers at the school, while Jodie seems to be getting into more and more trouble. Maybe Pearl just doesn’t need Jodie like she used to… but Jodie needs her. And when Fireworks Night explodes with a tragedy, Pearl remembers how much she needs her big sister too… A moving and powerful story of sisterhood from the UK’s best-loved author.
