'A touching story about sisters and friendships, gentle and warm and funny' Jacqueline Wilson
There’s never a dull moment with the Strawberry Sisters!
Meet the Strawberry Sisters! Oldest sister Amelia wants to be Left Alone to have deep thoughts, so she's grown a fringe to hide under. Second up is Chloe who's sport-crazy and in training to be a wrestling star (this week anyway). Littlest sister Lucy is the cute one who's training an army of earwigs. Ella the "middle one" is still trying to work out what makes her "perfectly Ella" and how to stand out in a house full of big personalities. And now there's a new Strawberry Sister. Baby Kirsti who lives with Dad and his Finnish girlfriend. Along with her sisters and one very tired Mum who's struggling to keep it all together, their small home is crammed with almost-finished homework, nearly-clean jumpers and a vampire bunny called Buttercup. With so much going on, life can sometimes feel totally crazy but the Strawberry sisters have a secret weapon against the craziness of the world they live in - each other.
Praise for THE STRAWBERRY SISTERS 'Candy Harper introduces thoughtful, self-conscious Ella and her three sisters, all beautifully rounded characters in an utterly believable family. This book will be immensely popular - sequels will certainly be demanded.' The Bookseller 'Told with plenty of touches of humour, this is a superb story about families, love and being there for one another' Parents in Touch
Candy Harper is a graduate of the Bath Spa MA in Creative Writing for Young People. She grew up in a rather small house in Oxfordshire and as the fourth of five sisters found it was often hard to get a word in edgeways, so she started writing down her best ideas. She has been a bookseller, a teacher and the person who puts those little stickers on apples.
