Magic Tree House
Junie B. Jones
A story of modern day friendships blends with a tale of life in Britain as a new immigrant.
When Deepa’s beloved gran makes her a special gift of her childhood diary to distract Deepa from problems she is having with her awful stepsister and her new school, little does Deepa suspect how fascinating it will prove.
The diary is in Punjabi so Deepa has to work hard to understand it. But it’s worth it, detailing as it does everything that happened to Gran when her family moved to England from India in the 1960s — including her friendship with the mischievous Milly. Deepa delves further to find out what really happened all those years ago. What happened to Milly? And can the past help with her own future?
