Me & Emma - Elizabeth
Emotionally charged story of a young girl living with an abusive
step father and how eight-year-old Carrie copes with the violence
of her life.
As the big sister, Carrie is determined to do anything to keep
Emma safe from a life of neglect and abuse at the hands of their
drunken stepfather, Richard—abuse their momma can't seem to see,
let alone stop.
Others try to support her but it's not until the end of the novel
that we realise how Carrie has coped with the stress.
childlike behaviour is expertly written by Flock and the reader
is drawn into her struggle. We hope that each kind person who
reaches out to Carrie will be the one to break the cycle and rescue
Flock has a keen understanding of the child's viewpoint and treats
the subject sensitively without resorting to gratuitous violence.
The Marigold Brightbutton series of five books cover Marigold's birth
to her school days.
Marigold, like her father, is destined to get into trouble. She just
can't leave things alone. From fireworks to white mice, Marigold's inquisitiveness
about life is insatiable. Great books, under $5, perfect for reading
aloud to school-age children.
