Nel giorno del suo quattordicesimo compleanno, April ripercorre le tappe della sua vita. Abbandonata in un cassonetto e trovata da un garzone di pizzeria, la bambina attraversa una serie di disavventure: famiglie adottive che si sfasciano, orfanotrofio e istituto di correzione, dove finalmente trova un'insegnante che la porta a vivere con sé. Ora April riesce a guardare il proprio passato con serenità, e ad acettare quella parte di sé che ne aveva fatto, a un certo punto della sua vita, una "bambina cattiva". Età di lettura: da 11 anni.

Jacqueline Wilson's books were what introduced me to the fantastic world of reading, it was what turned me into a book lover and I really must thank Jacqueline Wilson for everything she has done. The great thing about growing up reading Wilson's books is that all her books covers real and important

.... I had a week before me, during which I was planning and packing for a very big trip, two thick books lined up in the queue (which would be the wooden box between my front door and the couch), and Dustbin Baby already read. I was not that impressed, and took a stroll through the giant spreadsheet Leggi tutto
There are a LOT of Jacqueline Wilson books on the BBC Top 200 list (thirteen?) & this, I feel, is one of her better ones. Over the years we’ve seen tragic news stories about young women abandoning their babies in school toilets or dumpsters; here Wilson imagines the life of one of those babies as a Leggi tutto
