I really love this book as it has two sides of the story. One side of the story is about a boy who has lost his mum and has to move in with his dads new girlfriend. Things don't go to well as he has to go to a new school and get along with his new step sister. The other side involves Ashley, the stepsister, who hates her new stepbrother. The book changes from the step siblings and show their feelings. I love this book because it has an amazing storyline with fantastic characters. I would recommend this book to people over the age of ten. This is a really good book and the other is amazing! Lizzie, Y7
Quite an enjoyable book; could have had a better plot, but overall I would recommend it to other readers.
This book was really interesting and realistic, and actually served to show how much high school can affect people's life, but how little it actually matters. * * * * * Cathy, Y10

It was the best book there. * * * * * Nathan, Y8
This book teaches you about what other people might be experiencing as someone around the world might be dealing with moving house with someone completely the opposite to them, just like 13 year old Stewart and 14 year old Ashley. If you read this and you are going through this it makes you think that you're not the only one.
It was really good, I would recommend it to teenagers that are having a rough time. My favourite thing about the book is the way the writer, Susan Nielsen, describes the way the characters feel and how she is able to show their emotions. Thank You
Because it was it has two sides one a girl and one a boy it is a good way to show different sides of a story. Keiran, Y7
I really liked this book because it was very realistic, all the events that happened felt like they could have happened in real life. I also liked that there were two sides of the story, and we got two know both Stewart's and Ashley's point of view. It was also interesting how Ashley, the popular teenage girl was actually harder to associate/empathise with than the socially awkward Stewart. Charlotte, Y10
I actually did really like this book. The two very different narrators told the story well between them, from two different points of view. I really related to Stewart more, and this helped to make the book that much more immersive for me. All of the major characters seemed sympathetic and well-motivated, and this made them a lot more likable. It came to a very satisfying conclusion, in which all of the characters worked out their flaws and solved their problems. It actually did subtly build tension for an actual confrontation, which gave it a pay-off for the slow-build story. Overall, it was interesting, funny and uplifting. * * * * Eleanor, Y9
