Emily never imagined Aunt Elizabeth would allow her to go to high school in Shrewsbury, and she's thrilled, especially as her friends Ilse, Teddy and Perry will be there. But there are conditions: Emily must board with hateful Aunt Ruth, and she must promise to stop writing stories. For Emily, who dreams of being a writer, this is unthinkable, but she wants an education, so reluctantly agrees.
With the move from her home at New Moon to Aunt Ruth's house, Emily faces many challenges. Not only must she prove herself at school, despite rejection and jealousy, but she begins to realise that she is growing up. Her childhood friendships - especially with Teddy and Perry - start to turn into something more complicated and in a small-town the merest hint of gossip can cause hurt and scandal.
