This novel was written for older children/young adults and is narrated by a girl who has just commenced Year Eleven at a new school. She and her family are trying to deal with the affects of her mother's depression, in addition to the move.
It deals sensitively with some difficult issues but has the pace and humour to hold the attention of its readers. A delightiful book that comes well recommended by teens themselves (see review) as well as professionals.
