Publisher's Summary

Katy Carr is a lively, daredevil oldest sister in a big family. She loves messing around outdoors, climbing on the garage roof or up a tree, cycling, skateboarding, swinging.... But her life changes in dramatic and unexpected ways after a serious accident.

Inspired by the classic novel What Katy Did, Jacqueline Wilson creates an irresistible 21st-century heroine. Fans of Hetty Feather and Tracy Beaker will fall in love with Katy and her family too.

EXCEPTIONAL.!!!!

I have loved Jacqueline Wilson books ever since i was a little girl. She has done it again With Katy. I was very moved. It was a very sweet story and made me see a side of things that I never knew before. It made me cry and laugh but mostly cry. Just goes to show that you have to accept yourself for who you truly are not matter what your situation. Jacqueline really pointed that out and that's awesome. The narrator Madeleine Leslay did an amazing job of reading this book she was beautifully well spoken and did an awesome job of doing each characters voices it really did sound like there was a different person in the room doing each of the voices. She really did make the story come to life. 5 out of 5 stars for everything. :)

Wonderfully entertaining!!!

This is our first Jacqueline Wilson's book and what can I say: we're hooked!!!
Wonderfully narrated, content is relevant touching on serious real life issues affecting us all but told in such a beautiful way that you can't stop listening wondering what's in store next for brave Katy.....both my kids 12 and 9 were enthralled till the very end. Great book to teach kids about resilience and perseverance.

Katy

I enjoyed how it describes how the characters feel.
I think it is made for 9 to 12 years of age.
It is my favourite book ever!

A ride with Katie is full of adventure.

I rate this book 5 stars because I thoroughly enjoyed the story line the plot remained interesting and the characters were very well researched.g I also like the sensitivity with which Jacqueline Wilson addressed many issues Katie and her family faced. You get to see how fragile the fabric that keeps a family together can be. Certain circumstances could break the family bond, and other circumstances could make them grow stronger. It's warm, it's funny, and its full of moments that will make you cry but also moments that will make your heart burst with pride for Katie. I will recommend this to any child over the age of nine because there is a lot to learn from reading this fantastic story.

This is very good

A wonderful story about a girl who manages with drastic changes but manages to focus on the good things in life. Katy is a very encouraging story for young girls going through the same life changing events .
