The Flip-Flop Club : Charmed Summer by Ellen Richardson

Making peace with the past and friends for a lifetime. Elly is sent by her father to stay with her Aunt Dina on Sunday Island for the whole summer. With no friends, Elly is bored. So when she receives a mysterious invitation for a midnight meeting, she sneaks out of the house, only to stumble into a bemused girl called Sierra, who is just as lost as Elly. A helpful little dog leads them into an overgrown maze ...where a grinning girl called Tash meets them. 'I thought a midnight feast would be a great start to our summer on Mystery Island!' The three girls have a lot of fun together, swimming, eating ice creams and exploring the island.

About the Author

Ellen Richardson

Ellen Richardson grew up in Missouri, USA. Her long, hot summer holidays were full of barbeques, homemade ice cream, watermelon, and twilight evenings spent catching lightning bugs in order to let them go and watch them spiral into the air like sparks from a bonfire. All the time she was growing up, she longed to see the ocean, and finally did on a school trip when she was the same age as Elly, Tash, and Sierra.

Ellen now lives in England with her family, and every summer they spend time by the sea. Her love for British islands is a big part of the joy of writing the Flip-Flop Club books.
