Product description

Frenemies, lies and blackmail: utterly hooked yet? We are! Ella is the new girl at school. She doesn’t know anyone. She doesn’t have any friends. In the playground, she’s that grey, silent person who lurks at the edge. All that’s bad enough, but she also has a terrible secret she can’t share with anyone. So Ella can’t believe her luck when Lydia, the popular girl, decides to be her new best friend. But what does Lydia really want? And what does it all have to do with Molly, the quiet, shy girl who won’t talk to anyone?

  • A gripping story of lies, friendship, and blackmail
  • One for fans of Jacqueline Wilson and Chris Higgins
  • Perfectly captures Ella’s isolation and interior voice
  • Powerful themes of bullying and being the odd one out

“A perfectly-pitched, thoughtful story with a big heart.” Katherine Woodfine

“[A] compelling debut, which tackles some serious topics in an age-appropriate way, with plenty of appeal to readers of Jacqueline Wilson or Cathy Cassidy.” Bookseller

    This book is FAB!

    This book is one of the best books I have ever read it is life changing story and also takes you into the mind of Ella and what she is thinking. It is about Ella’s life and how she copes with things. I would definitely recommend this book for children 10-14
