Tenterhooks tells the story of Jasmine, who is sent to live with her Aunt and Uncle in the country while her Mum has a baby.Jasmine's very irritated about being left out of all the excitement and finds it hard to cope with country life, her grumpy cousin Jeff, and the big drought that means she can't even have a decent shower.
Then she and Jeff meet a rather unusual couple who are having a baby of their own and, as the birth of both babies comes closer, the children learn the real meaning of being on tenterhooks.
Readers will find themselves on tenterhooks too in this warm but gripping story about the excitement, dangers and tensions that make ordinary people's lives extraordinary. Rarely has the subject of childbirth been so entertainingly and deftly presented for this age group.
