Mo, Lottie and the Junkers, by Jennifer Killick
Mo Appleby's ordered life is turned upside down when he and his mum move in with his new stepdad and stepsisters, Lottie and Sadie. The home he left behind is just across the street, and there's something not quite right about the new occupant. Other strange new people keep popping into his life, too: a bonkers lollipop man and a boy called Jax, who seems to understand Mo better than anyone else, especially Lottie. Lottie is determined to find out exactly what's going on, even if it makes Mo mad, and even if it leads them both into serious danger...
Mo, Lottie and the Junkers is a totally engaging and highly amusing sci-fi-come-detective story featuring a brilliant duo in Mo and Lottie, who provide hilarious narration. Published by Firefly Press, with tons of original and eccentric ideas throughout the narrative you can’t help but be drawn in to the mystery. Read the full review here.
