MEET TEN-YEAR-OLD ANDY. THE SUITCASE KID.
"When my parents split up they didn't know what to do with me. My family always lived at Mulberry Cottage. Mum, Dad, me - and Radish, my lovable toy rabbit. But now, Mum lives with Bill the Baboon and his three kids. Dad lives with Carrie and her twins. And where do I live? I live out of a suitcase."

But when they split up, Andy has to say goodbye to her childhood home. Now she spends one week at her mum's and one week at her dad's.
