"Star used to love Marigold, love me, love our life together. We three were the colourful ones, like the glowing pictures inked all over Marigold...

Covered from head to foot with glorious tattoos, Marigold is the brightest, most beautiful mother in the world. That's what Dolphin thinks (she just wishes her beautiful mum wouldn't stay out partying all night or go weird now and then.) Her older sister, Star, isn't so sure any more. She loves Marigold too, but sometimes she just can't help wishing she were more normal...

A powerful and memorable tale for older readers. " - back cover

I really enjoyed Jacqueline Wilson's books when I was younger, but this and the one I read previous as part of the BBC Big Read have just made me feel really sad. Well written, and left at a point where you hope everything gets better for Dolphin and Star.
