MUD STICKS. AND SO DO LITERARY HEROINES
An achingly funny, touching story for anyone who has been thrown in at the deep end.
`Smart and funny. It will tug at your heartstrings' Dawn O'Porter
It's 1979, and thirteen-year-old Lydia has no idea how she'll cope when her dad announces that the family has to sell up and move onto a Thames sailing barge in Essex. With his girlfriend. And her three kids.
Between trying to keep her clothes dry in a leaky cabin, disastrous hair-dye attempts, awkward encounters with local boys, and coping with her suddenly enormous and troublesome family, Lydia fears she'll sink rather than swim . . .
At turns heartbreaking and uplifting, through Lydia's innocent and perceptive voice we find out that while the mud may stick, the tide can turn - and in unexpected and joyful ways.
Perfect for fans of Louise Rennison, Hilary McKay and Rae Earl
