This is so good! The ending is so emotional!

I cry at how the nurses treat poor Elsie and I understand her feelings.
She is rather like me it feels like we’re sisters
I blushed when the nurse gave her the pot to go to the toilet

I really liked this book because it just had such a warm feel to it. I honestly didn’t want it to end and it was the first time I’d read a large chapter book. Loved it!

I was almost in tears when I had read the first few chapters of this book. I would hate to be put in Elsie’s shoes. it’s just so emotional. to be Elsie, to know that your mum doesn’t really care about you and to know that the only one who loves you is suffering in hospital. oh!
don’t ask me about it. despite the emotional parts, I really enjoyed this book. you must read it because you’ll be speechless by the time you have read it.

this book is quite sad and nearly had me in tears when the nan goes into a special hospital and she has to be parted from her only grandaughter. i have read this book 1 and a half times.

I really like the idea of Elsie sleeping with her Nan if she is afraid of the dark which is probably all the time. Also when Elsie’s Nan does not even need Elsie’s mum to look after Elsie. This shows that Elsie’s Nan is responsible for everything Elsie does. This also shows that Elsie and her Nan love each other very much. I think that Elsie is a very sensible child because her Nan has never ever shouted at her, not even once!!!
I am sure things will go right for the rest of Elsie’s life but we just have to wait and see if that is true!Do you agree with me?
Due to the fact this is such a interesting book to me i will rate this book to an outstanding amount of 5/5!!!
