MEET TEN-YEAR-OLD ANDY. THE SUITCASE KID.

"When my parents split up they didn't know what to do with me. My family always lived at Mulberry Cottage. Mum, Dad, me - and Radish, my lovable toy rabbit. But now, Mum lives with Bill the Baboon and his three kids. Dad lives with Carrie and her twins. And where do I live? I live out of a suitcase."

Andy has always lived at Mulberry Cottage with her mum and dad.

But when they split up, Andy has to say goodbye to her childhood home. Now she spends one week at her mum's and one week at her dad's.

With a brand-new stepfamily to deal with and two new houses, will Andy ever feel at home?

Written by the multi-award-winning author, Jacqueline Wilson, The Suitcase Kid explores the emotions around divorce with humour, and ultimately optimism. The perfect book to start conversations about difficult topics like divorce with young readers.
