This is a delightful book for any girl to read, nothing horrible just happy kid experiences and some wishes too. The main character Charlie is in year 9 with boys as mates that she goes on adventures with. Suddenly everything changes, making Charlie question her feelings and her family.
The old house sounds great the way it is described in the book, even having its secrets for Charlie to find.
This is a great book and I would recommend it for all girls. In a very subtle way it reminded me of Enid Blytons books. Well done Rebecca Emin, may all your dreams come true.
