Shy dancer Georgie and quirky, witchy Jem aren’t just best friends any more; now Georgie’s mum and Jem’s dad are together, they’re going to be sisters! It’s a dream come true. But what’s it really like to suddenly be part of a whole new superglued-together family?
Georgie’s a big sister for the first time. Jem’s great at making friends – but it’s harder when she’s away seeing her mum every weekend. At their new school, strange mean things keep happening. Enter Miss Eagle, their lovely English teacher, with a brilliant plan: a ball of secrets, for everyone to put their worries inside, which they’ll set fire to. Worries up in smoke! But when the ball goes missing, suddenly no one’s secrets are safe.
A kind, funny, family story about making friends, good intentions, giraffes, inappropriate Valentine’s Day poetry, doing Shakespeare in your pants, and giant ostrich eggs.
