Flour Babies is one of my favourite books. This book is written by the author Anne Fine. The review by Goodreads will give you an insight as to what this book is about.
Flour Babies is a day school novel for young adults, written by Anne Fine and published by Hamilton 1992. It features a group “science experiment” in a classroom full of poor students. “When his class of underachievers is assigned to spend three torturous weeks taking care of their own “babies” in the form of bags of flour, Simon makes amazing discoveries about himself while coming to terms with his long-absent father.”
This book will appeal to both genders. It covers a range of issues such as family relationships. I would definitely recommend this book to be read.
