Lily Alone

Lily isn’t home alone – but if only she was! Mum’s gone off on holiday with her new boyfriend, and her stepdad has failed to show up as agreed. That leaves Lily in charge of the whole family – the six-year-old twins, her three-year-old sister and their flat. Poor Lily feels completely overwhelmed, but how can she tell anyone what’s happening? If school or social services find out, they might break up her family. But then Lily has a brainwave! She’ll take the little ones camping in the park! Plenty of space to run about, no carpet to vacuum, and surely no chance anyone will guess why they’re there… A vivid and touching tale of family loyalty, written in the classic Jacky vein.
