About this deal

Floss's school uniforms get dirtier and disarrayed as Charlie is not used to washing and ironing them, but her teacher, Mrs. Readers will cheer her on and feel satisfaction when she sees her ex-best friend for the bully and snob that she is.

Floss is our heroine with the candyfloss hair and Charlie is her dad who she decides to live with after a very difficult decision. But although the plot and conflicts were strong, my main complaint is that the continuous fucked ups of Floss’ dad was never discovered by her mom. I like the imagination that has been put into the characters, it sutis them because of the sort of situations that they are in. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.An immensely readable novel which handles serious issues – fractured families, the nature of celebrity – with the lightest of touches.

Jacqueline Wilson wrote her first novel when she was nine years old, and she has been writing ever since. As a teenager she started work for a magazine publishing company and then went on to work as a journalist on Jackie magazine (which she was told was named after her! I think it's great for parents because it perfectly illustrates how kids' problems are just as big and serious and real as our adult-type problems. Rhiannon's posh and snobby mother assumes that Charlie is an unfit father and repeatedly tries to lecture him and pamper Floss believing she is living in an unclean dump. Double Act won the prestigious Smarties Medal and the Children’s Book Award as well as being highly commended for the Carnegie Medal.I feel like publishers are underestimating an American kid by making the change that serves no purpose -- especially since it's such a British story. Floss lives with Mum but when she goes to Australia for six months, Floss can't bear to leave Dad on his own so moves into the café to keep him company. Candyfloss was definitely in my top 5 Jacqueline Wilson books as a child and listening to it again brought back so many good memories. As the fourth Children's Laureate (2005-2007) she promoted the importance of sharing books, and reading aloud together.
