Floss loves spending weekends with her dad in his greasy-spoon café, even if it isn't the smartest place in town and only has three regular customers. Even Floss's best friend, Rhiannon, turns her nose up at it. When Floss's mum and her new husband, Steve, move to Australia, Floss faces a difficult choice, but decides to stay at home with Dad.

He's not much good at ironing school clothes or putting up garden swings, but they muddle along happily on a diet of chip butties and candyfloss from the local funfair. But then disaster strikes, and they find themselves homeless. Will their new fairground friends help out? Could Dad and Floss be destined for a life on the road? Download and start listening now!

    " this book was good and it was full of hard choice. The thing about this book is its like a true life book because this is what happens in real life some children are split up 4rom 1 of thier parents. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Littlecloud | 2/12/2014

    " some parts of this book I found not so good, like Floss's Dad's cafe. It was pretty pointless. And one thing that certainly bothers me, is when characters don't do the things I would do in the same situation, and Floss and I are complete opposites. That was really a downer. But it was told pretty well. I have mixed feelings about Candyfloss... "

    " This book is kind of sad~ "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kyla | 1/30/2014

    " On the search for some good "divorce-lit" for a kiddo at school who is going through a hard time. May pass this along to her because it raises good points about split houses, different values, remarriage, even school bullying....but all with a light, candy-coating. Simultaneously sad and hopeful. With drawings! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Loopyloo | 1/1/2014

    " it was good but sad. I still loved it. I loved the bit about the fairground and how her dad rescued her from a fire after he went to stop a fight. I didn't like the nasty girls at school who kept calling her names. I would love to read all the other books by Jacqueline Wilson, she's a great writer "

    " Wilson has a wonderful knack of acknowledging the difficulties in children's lives without either being depressing or fancifully unrealistic. My daughter loves her books, and I can see why. "
