Synopsis

Sunita's Secret by Narinder Dhami

Sunita starts at her new school determined to hide her horrible secret. But class 'goddess' Celina soon becomes Sunita's arch-enemy and their classmates soon find out that Sunita's dad is an infamous fraudster on the run. Sunita has her work cut out to prove that she's no criminal herself. She tries to be ultra-careful about making friends but somehow she can't hide her natural instinct for helping people. As she's trying to keep her head down, she starts doing little favours for people secretly. And, oddly, a rash of helpful book-mending, locker-tidying and present-leaving quickly takes over the class and, then, the whole school. Even Celina seems to have been affected - but when she tries to take the credit for the scheme, Sunita can see her motives are far from innocent. Should Sunita put up or shut up?

About the Author

Narinder Dhami

Narinder Dhami is one of the four authors of the Rainbow Magic series, written under the name of Daisy Meadows.She now lives in Cambridge with her husband and her cats.

Dhami's father was an Indian immigrant from the Punjab who arrived in the UK in 1954, and her mother is English.[1] She grew up in a multi-cultural environment, with Indian and western cultures both major influences in her life, and was educated at Wolverhampton Girls' High School and Birmingham University, where she took a degree in English in 1980. Dhami started working as a teacher, and for the next nine years she taught in primary and secondary schools in Essex and in the London borough of Waltham Forest. During this time, she began writing stories for teenage magazines, and contributed many photo-stories to the now-defunct Jackie magazine, published by DC Thomson. Eventually, Narinder gave up teaching for a full-time writing career. For the last few years, she has concentrated on contemporary realistic fiction about young girls of Asian origin growing up in modern Britain. Her Babes trilogy is extremely popular with girls between 9 and 14 years of age.
