Oh my. This book is beautiful.
Pearl at school is a group of one. She sits and waits until the end of the school day, when she can run home to her world of three, Pearl and Mum and Granny.
But Granny is fading. And Prudence Jones, the prettiest girl in the class, thinks that Pearl has stolen her boyfriend. Boyfriend? Pearl is a group of one! Whatever can Prudence mean?
Beautifully written in verse, Heather Potter’s illustrations perfectly compliment this wonderful and moving look at making friends, fitting in, family, loss and grief. and how a little girl can make sense of all these things.
