My Sister Jodie illustrated by Nick Sharratt (2008)
A beautiful, turbulent and at times, heart-aching story of family, change and resilience await in My Sister Jodie. For as long as she can remember, Pearl has looked up to her brave and brash sister, Jodie. But when the girls are forced to change school and attend posh boarding school, Melchester College, dynamics between the sisters change. As Pearl becomes more popular, Jodie seems to be getting into more and more trouble. Pearl begins to wonder whether she needs her big sister as much anymore; but when tragedy strikes, that question is answered.
