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… An emotional roller-coaster ride of a story from a superstar author.

    This has got to be one of the most deepest books I have read. It is an amazing story about sisters and how they move away to a brand new school but that would have been one of the worst mistakes of their parents lives, as a tragic accident happen.
