A heartwarming tale of wit, warmth, friendship and self-confidence. Abi’s week goes from bad to worse when she is fitted for braces and then sent to Magnolia Gardens Care Home for her school Work Experience placement. She is shy to begin with, but now she doesn’t even seem to be in control of her own mouth, and the placement will mean talking to all sorts of strangers. But then Abi meets Alice, an old lady with a story to tell, and through Alice, Abi too finds her voice. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 12+


What a sweet and funny book! I read this and at times I was laughing but also had tears in my eyes. Full of heart and humour, I definitely recommend this book!
