Private Keep Out

But this book is special It’s written by young girl growing up in a mining town in 1948 who is practising to become a writer when she grows uppossibly It’s hard work being a writer There’s no privacy in a house with six kids and there’s no time especially if you have to go to school and to dancing class and wear frilly knickers and Sunday school and sing about being a sunbeam You’re supposed to write about what you kno. Lovely little book as recommended by Lucy Mangan They did things differently way back when but I rather loved this little girl

Gwen Grant È 1 SUMMARY

W which means this book is about annoying sisters with no sense of humour and brothers who think they know everything and bullies and chicken spots and being run over Sometimes you can write about good things that happen like going to the seaside or Christmas Eve but mostly the stories end with being sent to bed early in disgrace But when the writer is a tough spiky and funny as this one her adventures will always be worth readi. Hmm Thought I d enjoy this book a lot than I did I possibly would have liked it if I read it when I was seven or eight but meeting Lizzie for the first time as an adult I just found her irritating and unbelievably bratty So much slapping from her siblings and especially from various adults some not even related to her not that that makes it acceptable Okaaaay It s fair to say I probably shan t bother with the seuel Sorry to all those who see what I don t this is just my opinion
