Synopsis

Secrets by Helen Orme

Donna meets Eddie, a really gorgeous boy, at the coffee shop. He's a friend of her older sister Briony's, so Donna decides it's best not to tell the Sisters. But of course, like all good friends, they soon sense something's wrong. Feeling pressured into things she doesn't want to do, Donna soon tells all. The Sisters know all about Eddie, and it's not good. But what will persuade Donna that he's not worth it? This book is part of the very popular series Siti's Sisters, featuring Siti and her group of friends, who are so close they call themselves The Sisters. This is a short, low-level chapter book, with an easy-to-read, fast-moving narrative and is part of Set 3, which is suitable for ages 12+, since some of the stories touch on more grown-up topics such as friends who take drugs and going to parties. The issues presented are, as always in this series, relevant and appealing to girls of this age. The Sisters are here!
