Reviews

Gr 3-5-Lizzie Zipmouth gets her name when she refuses to speak to anyone after her mother remarries in this novel by Jacqueline Wilson. She especially doesn't want to talk to her new father, Sam, or her new step-brothers, Rory and Jake. Lizzie is afraid of the changes in her life, and very concerned that the good times won't last. She stops speaking to punish her mother and as a test for her stepfather. Everything begins to change when Lizzie meets her new step-great-grandmother and her doll collection. The story is engaging and the characters are realistically drawn. British actress Sophie Aldred does a superb job as narrator. The Briticisms might be distracting to young listeners, although they are not essential to the plot. Those who can ignore this minor problem will enjoy a well-told tale about a young girl discovering herself and her new family-Saleena Davidson, South Brunswick Public Library, Monmouth Junction, NJ Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
