Synopsis

Keeping Mum by Jill Atkins

Abbi's not doing well at school. Her homework's not good and she's always late for school. The teachers are giving her a bad time about it, but she's doing all she can. Because Abbi has a secret. And the school must never find out, or she and her brother Joe might end up in care. Can Abbi keep mum? This book is ideal for reluctant readers who want all the strengths of great teenage fiction in their stories. It's fast-paced, with a great storyline, exciting and full of drama, but also includes thought-provoking, poignant moments. It's a great book to entice a reluctant teen into reading!
