Lizzie isn’t speaking to her new stepfamily -- she’s a stubborn zipmouth -- until she meets a member of the new family who is even more determined than she is.
In this short, lively novel from mega-selling author, Jacqueline Wilson, Lizzie has zipped up her mouth. She’s totally fed up at having to join a new family and nothing can coax her into speaking to them. Not football, not pizza, not a new bedroom. That is, until she meets Great-Gran, who is even more stubborn than her -- and has had a lot more practice.
