The Lovereading4Kids comment

A brilliant story of two girls; one who dreams of swapping her semi-detached life and moving into the big empty house down the road but when she meets Tia who does move to Paradise End, Carly realises that although Tia has everything money can buy, her life is lonely and full of cruel secrets. The characters and that of their friendship are brilliantly drawn.

Synopsis

Paradise End by Elizabeth Laird

Carly often finds herself gazing through the gates of Paradise End. She fantasizes about discovering that she was swapped at birth, and is in fact the rightful owner of the mansion. Then she meets Tia, the daughter of the new tenant of Paradise End, and Carly begins to realize that life behind the impressive pillars isn't anything like her dream.
