Ginger is allergic to cats. And possibly to her family as well. She's also not keen on the cat food in her breakfast bowl or the school principal trying to kill her best friend. The question on everyone's lips is – will Ginger snap?

Reviews

Another example of Gleitzman's real talent in writing honest stories that hit home with kids. In usual Gleitzman style, there are deeper underlying issues behind the hilarity, this time being a girl feeling worried and like she doesn't fit in anywhere. Her parents are always too busy for her, her teachers are out to get her, and she just doesn't belong.
