With an engaging set of characters, the eventful book focuses on Dee’s family, friends, romance and relationships.

I think of my lovely pony and realise she needs help too. I accept that I have to grow up and help Mum, Dad and Lily. Gell, too, needs a sensitive friend. Bottom line? I have to mature immediately.”
