Jacqueline Wilson is a bestselling author in England, second only to J. K. Rowling.
Charlie's world is changing -- for the worse. Her new teacher refuses to call her anything but Charlotte. (Blech!) And forces her to sit next to Jamie Edwards, the most revolting stuck-up boring boy in the whole class. (Yuck!) And assigns her a project on the boring Victorian period. (Ugh!) But Charlie's dreary research -- and her active imagination -- leads to some interesting discoveries. Like Lottie . . . a nursemaid whose life in the Victorian era holds some interesting parallels to Charlie's own.
