Hetty Feather - Jacqueline Wilson, Nick Sharratt I enjoyed this book very much. The beginning captured my attention as it is told in the first person singular, with Hetty narrating her own life story, amzingly, from birth! Yes. You heard me right. She remembers everything from the earliest moments of her life.

Of course, this is the authors invention, but I love it.

Times are tough for Hetty, but she is strong, and she gets through even the heardest of times.

It is difficult for me to say more, without spoiling it for you, but I do recommend Hetty Feather to you.
