Year Group 3
Meet Zoe she's got a lot of things to be unhappy about...
For example her sweet mother died when she was 5. Now she is 11. Ever since her mother died her life was soppy. At least she had her dad and her little hamster Gingernut for company.
It is her first day at high school and she's having assembly. In the back of her head she's scared that Tina Trotts the local bully is going to spit into her hair. One night her father came back with a despicable woman. It was her stepmother. The horrible women had an addiction to prawn cocktail crisps. This book takes Zoe and her new best friend Armitage on an adventure to stop a guy who makes burgers.
My favourite part of it was when the stepmother got stuck in a rubbish tube because her bum was sticking out. The scariest bit was when the burger guy's glasses fell and it showed no eyes.
I would recommend this book to people who like sad, happy and scary stories.
