Review

" ... the underlying issues do not overpower this story of family loyalties and friendship." -- School Librarian, Summer 2010 issue

About the Author

Laura Summers grew up in South London and was a teacher before turning full time to writing. She has written for many popular children's television series including The Story of Tracy Beaker and The New Worst Witch, and was nominated for a children's BAFTA for one of her scripts for The Little Princess. Her first book, DESPERATE MEASURES, was shortlisted for the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize and nominated for the Carnegie Medal. It also won the prestigious Literature Ability Media International Award run by Leonard Cheshire Disability and supported by Orange. Laura now lives in North Devon with her husband and children and when not writing loves to draw and paint.
