‘I’ve lost my sister. If you’ve seen someone who doesn’t blend into the crowd,’ I sniffle, ‘well, that’s her.’
Katie seems to have everything you could wish for – she’s pretty, successful and has a rich handsome boyfriend, Sam. But now it’s crunch time. In one week her sister, Bells, is coming to stay and Sam doesn’t even know she has a sister. It’s always been too difficult to bring the topic up. Bells is…different. She just doesn’t fit into the perfect world Katie has created.
But that world is about to be turned upside down. Bells pins tatty posters on Sam’s pristine walls, plays Stevie Wonder at full volume, strikes up conversations with strangers – including an attractive man at the supermarket – and creates mayhem.
Soon Katie’s relationship with Sam is under severe strain and she is forced to confront her past. And problems escalate when Katie receives disturbing news about her mother.
But, with help from Bells, Katie finally learns about real love, and that appearances can be very deceptive.
