Life According to Dani
A stand-alone follow-up to the acclaimed and beloved chapter books that began with New York Times Notable Book My Happy Life.
In Life According to Dani, it’s Dani’s first summer vacation—and the best ever! She is staying on an island with Ella, her best friend in the world. Dad is still in hospital but he calls every day, and Ella and Dani stay busy building huts, fishing, exploring, and swimming.
Then Dad turns up, but with his nurse too! This is not the visit anyone had imagined.
This warm, funny story allows space for strong emotions, as Dani struggles with the idea of her father’s new girlfriend, but does so with a light touch.
