Dixie is the youngest Diamond girl. She and her sisters – dreamy Martine, glamorous Rochelle and tough Jude – could hardly be more different, but their mum has always tried to teach them the value of sticking together.
Now Mum's expecting yet another baby, and she's convinced this one's a boy. She insists they move to a bigger place – but it's rough, dilapidated and filthy, and before they've even unpacked, Mum's gone into labour! Can the Diamond girls pull together in time for her to come home? And will anyone spot Mum's little secret but Dixie?
An amusing and touching story of a quirky single mother and her daughters, told from the point of view of one of the daughters. Things go from bad to worse for the family in a hilarious series of events. The reader does a superb job, and "Dixie", the main character is lovable. The book has a good message about family without being at all preachy.

The best book ever!!!
I liked it when Bruce punched the mean boys and didn't like it when Jude and rechell left and only marteen was left to do all the heavy lifting because Bruce had a bad back and mum had just had a baby as it would be hard work. Annabelle walker
