Too Nice

Paperback

Abby struggles with feelings of anxiety about school during a period of family upheaval in this sensitive and touching story from Sally Nicholls.

Abby is used to it being just her and her dad at home, but now her dad’s new girlfriend Jen is moving in and everything is changing. It’s not like Jen is an evil stepmother, though. Instead, Abby’s problem is that Jen is just too nice! She constantly compliments Abby on everything from her appearance to her schoolwork, and Abby finds it fake and claustrophobic. But how can she explain to her dad how she feels when Jen hasn’t really done anything wrong?
