Freia Lockhart's Summer of Awful
How [not] to keep it together when your world falls apart. Freia Lockhart has the essentials for an awesome summer: great new friends, a supremely kissable boyfriend, plans for New Year's Eve (which don't include her parents) and no school. When her mum reveals some devastating news, Freia's plans for the summer of her dreams are crushed. Now she's trying to keep things together at home and salvage her holidays, but it's not easy when you've got secrets to keep, a little brother who's going off the rails and a nosy gran who won't stay out of your business.
