Synopsis

Peppermint Kiss by Kelly McKain

Abbie's life feels like one big rain cloud since her parents split up. Now she lives with her mum and sisters in a grotty flat. Only new friends, Ben Summer, and gorgeous guitar-playing Marco, offer Abbie a silver lining. But then Abbie has the bright idea to turn her family's fortunes around. She has always loved making her own beauty products. Could opening a new business - the Rainbow Beauty parlour - bring her family a pot of gold and heal their hearts too?
