Brownies, why not take part in our book club? Each month, we review a book. Sometimes they are new books and sometimes they are old classics that you'll find in your school library. Read them and tell us what you think.

Ice Lolly

by Jean Ure

When Lol's mum dies she and Mr Pooter, her beloved cat, go to live with her uncle and aunt. Things aren't very easy for Lol. She misses her mum, her Auntie Ellen and cousin Holly don't make her feel very welcome, and Auntie Ellen doesn't like cats. With all that going on Lol thinks it would be easier if she could stop feeling. She wants to freeze, just like an ice lolly.

Anna, the Brownie Book Club Editor, thinks this...

This is a really easy book to read. Although Lol has quite an unusual life, there are things in the book that almost every girl can understand like the part when Lol gets teased at a new school.

Even though the book is quite sad it's also uplifting too. It's very clever the way Jean Ure has written the book so that the reader understands Lol more than she understands herself.

Anna loved it! She rated it
