Kidzworld reviews A Little Friendly Advice by Siobhan Vivian.

Author: Siobhan Vivian

Ruby's world is turned upside down when her long-lost dad re-enters her life. Read Kidzworld's review of Siobhan Vivian's debut novel, A Little Friendly Advice.

Sour Sixteen

For Ruby's sweet sixteenth birthday, her mom throws her a party with all of her closest friends and gives her the coolest present ever - a vintage Polaroid camera. But things quickly turn sour when her long-lost dad, who walked out on the family six years ago, unexpectedly comes back into her life via the front door. Ruby doesn't know what to do or how to deal, so it's a good thing she has great friends who come to her rescue and give her some much-needed advice.

Friends or Enemies?

Unfortunately, Ruby's friends have more advice than she wants to hear. They tell her to forget her dad ever existed... except that she doesn't want to. Even though she's mad at her dad, Ruby still wants to see him to figure out why he left in the first place. But when she discovers that Beth, the best and most loyal friend anyone could ever have, has been secretly keeping a letter that her dad left for Ruby, her already chaotic life takes a bigger turn for the worse. Ruby must re-evaluate her friendships, as well as decide if she can rebuild a relationship with her once-beloved dad. Will she be able to work things out with her mom, her dad and her best friend? You'll have to read the book to find out!


The Bottom Line

A Little Friendly Advice takes readers into the world of broken families and shows you just how tough it is for kids to deal with divorce. Whether your parents are divorced or not, this book will give you great insight into everyday issues about families and forgiveness.

    Dear Readers,           This isn't really a question, but I still need help and ideas. My parent's birthday is coming up, and I want to make her something. Not just a card or picture, either. I want something that, when I move out, it will remind her of when I was the age I am now. I wanted to do something that had to do with how many things live at our house. We have two dogs, two rabbits, a cat, I have a sister, and just my mom. Not my dad (they split up). So if you have any ideas on what I could do, let me know.                                                                    Thank you,                                                                                                                                                                             Wjymmas

    i would like to point out that theres a difference between having an open mind and believing crazy stuff because of willful or unintentional scientific and factual ignorance. youtube videos made by conspiracy theorists are not a very good source of information. I honestly think that if you believe the earth is flat, there is something fundamentally wrong with your way of thinking and how you decide whats true and whats not.
