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 Sylvanian 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. One week with Mum's new family, one week with Dad's. It's as easy as A B C. That's what everyone says. But all I want is to go home - back to Mulberry Cottage... "Light humor and an eventual realization on Andy's part that she is loved by her Mom and Dad and even liked by some of her stepsiblings and new half-sister (and that she likes some of them, too) make this a satisfying read." --School Library Journal Ages nine and up.
