Product description

Lissa’s world has just turned upside down. Her father is out of jail, and coming home for Christmas. She can’t bear the way her mother and sister are so happy and making welcome plans. After all, he was the one who let them all down and spoilt her life, wasn’t he? Before he went to jail she had a nice house, trendy clothes and pretty much anything that she wanted. Now it is “Not so high and mighty now, are you?” at school. Life improves when new girl Diane arrives at school. She sympathises with Lissa and tells her to ignore her classmates’ taunts. And Diane’s parents have the big house that Lissa used to have, so Lissa can at least play make-believe. But what Lissa doesn’t realise is that Diane is very manipulative. Nor does she realise how much her dad loves her. Only when a combination of events come together is she forced to face facts about who, and what, really matters to her…
