Fleur trotter was my favourite character of the book because she was easy to relate to. She had typical problems that all girl experience.

The issues addressed in this book were family problems, death, natural disastrous and the development of friend ship. The theme was family because u see the relationship between Fleur and her parents step parents and sisters develop.

The genre of this book is comedy, although I personally didn't find it very funny. I give this book a 3.5 out of 10 because I really didn't enjoy it. It didn't have an interesting story line and the author used dump humour. Id recommend this book for girls around the age of 12 who like light books that u don't have to get very involved in.
