Binny For Short

Binny for Short Book Cover After her father’s death, money is tight, and eleven-year-old Binny and her family move to a cramped apartment, where their dreadful old Aunty Violet gives away Binny’s adored dog Max.  They move again when Aunty Violet dies and bequeaths to them a seaside cottage.  There, Binny meets Gareth, the lonely, angry boy next door and good-looking Liam, who lets Binny join the crew on his boat.  Other delightful characters are Binny’s insightful, loving mother, big sister Clem, and hilarious, independent little brother James. Family life ups and downs are heart-warming, entertaining, and lead to a very satisfying ending. mjw
