The Lottie Project

Jacqueline Wilson serves up another winner with this tale of two girls with similar problems, living in very different times. For a history project, Charlie is writing the diary of Lottie, a Victorian serving girl. Lottie shares Charlie’s name, Charlotte, and is also eleven. But that’s where the similarities end. Unlike Charlie, Lottie has to work to support her big, poor family. It seems a million miles from Charlie’s life – until Mum loses her job. Suddenly Charlie sees how much she can learn from Lottie’s hardships. For a start, Lottie would definitely know what to do about Mum’s awful boyfriend and his wimpy son!

  • A best-loved classic with a vivid historical element
  • Perfect for fans of Hetty Feather and Tracy Beaker
  • Heartwarming, thought-provoking and very entertaining
  • Jacqueline Wilson has sold over 35 million books
