Review: Charlotte liked her school, her house and her friends, but her parents are moving. She struggles to settle into her new school, she struggles to make friends. She meets with the school counsellor and there finds a few friends and slowly start to feel better.
Charlotte really enjoyed her life, the thought of a new school scared her, a new teacher, having to try and make new friends. On her first day she only makes one friend. The portrayal of the feelings and struggles is great and explained really well. It’s a daunting thing having to redo everything you’d been comfortable with for your whole life and adjusting can be hard to do.
This book could be a great helper if you’re planning on moving to help give your child some guidance and help the process go a bit smoother. It’s a well written book, with a sweet message and great advice written within the story of what to do and how to figure out how to fit in at a new school.
