|Darcy Burdock by Laura Dockrill|
I think the language is easy to understand for young readers (9+). It’s quite straightforward to read but ever so funny. I liked the way the book was written but it’s not really something I would buy compared to Dear God It’s Me Margaret by Judy Blume.The author creates a joyful happy mood in the story but it can get sad. I think Darcy has a little bit of evil growing inside her but it dies down towards the end of the book.
I think it is a really good book for people who like Tracy Beaker by Jacqueline Wilson because I read some of her books when I was younger (but I’m not so keen on them now). So this isn’t one of my favourite books because it’s not really my cup of tea because it feels a bit young to me.After I finished this book I didn’t have that feeling that I had lost something; Just, “oh I’ve finished it”. That’s just my opinion.
