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.
