Joe all alone – Joanna Nadin


The reader feels sorry for the main character Joe, from the opening page of this novel.

Joe is 11 when his Mu23508698m and her ‘new boyfriend’ decide to go to Spain for a week’s holiday and leave him hime alone. But this is no Macauley Calkin movie! Joe is bullied at school mercilessly by a group who are after his money. He looks unkempt and dirty, as he’s not been left enough money to keeo the hot water topped up. His food supplies soon run out and when one week stretches to more, he has to ask for help from his neighbour’s grandaughter Asha.

Very ‘English’ in setting and atmosphere, but an engaging read,
