'Utter loathing and hatred,' I said. 'I wouldn't even be on the same bus as you! If I could have caught a virus in time.' Erica Yurken knew she was destined for great things. Never in any doubt about her own genius, she felt superior to everyone at notorious Barringa East! That is, until Alison Ashley unexpectedly turned up. This novel will appeal to all old and new fans of the original book, and fans of the talented Delta Goodrem who plays Alison Ashley in the film. This is a very funny tale that will ring true for many Primary school students. The characters that Robin Klein has created are heart-warming, sometimes tragic, and definitely colourful.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
