10 year old Andrea used to live happily with her family at Mulberry Cottage: Andy, Mum, Dad…and Radish, who lives in Andy’s pocket and shares all her secrets. But then it all went wrong: Mum went to live with Bill and his kids and Dad went off with Carrie and her twins. And Andy? Well, she was expected to shuttle between the two – living out of a suitcase.
The Suitcase Kid is a funny and touching story of how Andy comes to terms with this strange new life.
