My life has been turned upside down, inside out, and totally shaken about. In the last week I've learnt:
- my mum's been keeping a MEGA secret from me MY WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE
- my dad is a famous novelist
- I have a sister I never knew about who's really sick and I'm the last chance she has of getting better.
I'm trying to pretend to everyone (and even myself) that I'm OK with it all, but really, I don't think I am.
Is Willow brave enough to save the sister she's never known and open up her world to a whole new family? The stakes are high but Willow will discover that the rewards are even greater.
A fresh story of family and friendship told with humour and frankness.
