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… A moving and powerful story of sisterhood from the UK’s best-loved author.

    OMG i loved this book it is really touching . i like how jodie looked after pearl. i think harley and pearl will be best freinds. it really sad that jodie fell out of the tower [it was so tall] but i know pearl is going to be a better sister than jodie and look after her baby sister may. I so cried at the end when she fell. I am so emotional and dramatic

    I love My Sister Jodie so much, it’s my favourite book as you can see on my profile. I think this is a really good book because it shows how two extremely different girls with different personalities can be so close. It is also really exiting, and once you start you can’t put the book down! Overall, I think it’s a really exciting, well-written amazing book.
