The trick of writing as a child is not easy to pull off, but Wilson
does it triumphantly * Independent on Sunday on THE SUITCASE KID
Honest, angry, sometimes sad and always very readable. There is also a near-happy ending, which is both moving and for the most part credible. Adults could learn something here about the emotional turmoil suffered by a child with divided loyalties * TES on THE SUITCASE KID *
Even the most resistant page-turner would find this difficult to put down * The Sunday Times on THE LOTTIE PROJECT *
