An excellent story for readers aged between year 5 and year 8. It is a story about 3 kids who are left behind while their parents go to
Paris to â€œfind romanceâ€. Aunt Marsha comes to look after them and even the parents are a little reluctant given aunt Marshaâ€™s cold and hard personality. The kids have to eat kidney pie, cabbage and drink grapefruit juice. They have to go to bed at 7.00pm, be home straight after school and Aiden is banned from reading his comics. The kids resent Aunt Marsha and are frightened of her. They are counting down the days till their parents return and are united in their common hatred of the mean Aunt Marsha. That is of course, until a shared moment of fear, forges a bond between the 4, that is unbreakable and they end up becoming best of friends. A really good read.
