PlotLife is hard for Star. She has to deal with bullying, her father's death, an old friend of her mother's (Charlie) who has just moved in and no-one seems to be listening to her. When Charlie tells Star's mum that he loves her and that they should move to the countryside Star dosen't know how to feel. This is a great book about a young girl going through some tough family problems.

I rate this book a 4/5 stars. It is good for 11 to 15 year old readers.
