I really like this book. I think that its the best book by Jacqueline Wilson. Lily’s mum goes of with her boyfriend to spain and leaves her with her three year old twin siblings and her 6 year old sister.Lily is determined to look after them, but then she starts worrying about school and thinks that maybe the social services might discover the situation. After all they’re free to do whatever they want…

Very emotional, dramatic and powerful imagination. I actually cried when reading it! I love it!
I loved Lily Alone! It was very exiting and I would recommend it for girls who are over 6 because it is very sad!
This (amazing) novel is about an eleven year old girl called Lily. Her Mum seems to have depression, so Lily has to look after her younger siblings Bliss, Baxter and Pixie quite a lot. Lily feels very alone, but sometimes she prefers that.
Lily Alone really moved me. It was so emotional and when Lily and her brother and sisters went through all the troubles and trauma, you could just tell that the words had been well thought of, and the whole story in general just fitted together really well. It definitely isn’t the most original novel Jacqueline has written, but it was definitely the best. And I know that whenever I review her books, I say ‘it’s the best’ but this time I’m telling the absolute truth; Jacqueline’s books just get better and better every time.
My favourite character was Bliss, Lily’s sister. She was so sweet and cute, and she was very caring. My least favourite character was Mr Abbott, Lily’s teacher. Lily says she loves him, but to me he just seems like a horrible man who has nothing better to do than poke around in other peoples lives!
I recommend this fabulous novel to readers aged 9-16, and give it 5/5. This really is an incredibly moving story that stays with the reader long after the final page is turned.
what a good book i can not belive that lilly stole food from someones house!!!!
