Ro Snow is the girl no-one notices - she doesn't go to parties and she doesn't have friends over. Besides, even if anyone tried to call on her they'd discover that no. 56 Arcadia Avenue isn't her house at all - it's her decoy house. Because her real home, a few doors down, is a tip of rubbish and paper and she can't remember the colour of the carpet it's been so long since she's seen it. Her mum, Bonnie, is a hoarder and Ro lives in terror of social services finding out about the squalor she is forced to live in. But when Noah moves in next door, Ro can't hide the truth from him and she finds herself opening up for the first time in her life. And then there's the new girl at school, the adorable and persistent Tanvi who can see that carefully hidden something-special in Ro too. And it's not long before Ro's carefully constructed castle of loneliness is crumbling down around her, but if she's out in the open, so is her painstakingly guarded secret ...

All About Mia

All About Mia

Author: Lisa Williamson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/02/2018

Mia Campbell-Richardson, 16, is ballsy, gorgeous and kind of a disaster. Unlike her brilliant sisters, academic Grace (19) and champion swimmer Audrey (13), middle child Mia has no idea what she wants to do with her life and is convinced of her status as the black sheep of the family. Struggling at school and unable to deal with her parents easy acceptance of perfect sister Grace's fall from grace - Mia goes into a tailspin, misguidedly seducing a man in his 40s and putting herself at risk on several occasions by drinking herself into oblivion. It is only the disappearance of her quiet and loving baby sister that is eventually able to bring Mia and Grace back together and help Mia see at last that she doesn't need it all to be about Mia to be happy.

But instead, it is Mia whose life spirals out of control - boozing, boys and bad behaviour - and she starts to realise that her attempts to make it All About Mia might put at risk the very things she loves the most.
