A ragdoll, a postcard from Marrakech, a rainbow-stripe hat, a dreamcatcher, a silver necklace with a pink stone in… Every birthday brings a special gift from Dizzy’s mum. Dizzy has faithfully kept everything, every gift and card from the mother who left when she was small. But this year is different. This year’s present is Mum herself, in person. Tanned and skinny, with loads of earrings and a huge smile, Storm is a human whirlwind… and she whisks Dizzy away for a summer that puts her whole world in a spin.

    Cathy Cassidy

    She’s been an art teacher, magazine editor and agony aunt but we like her best as a top-selling author. If you love books about family, friendship and chocolate, then look no further than Cathy!
