Bindy, aged 15, has known her best friend Janie since they were babies and they've been inseparable ever since.
But now the unthinkable has happened - Janie's attaching herself to a different crowd at school and she's acting as if she doesn't want to know Bindy any more.
The new crowd is loud, bitchy, interested in boys and clothes, rebellious, daring.
All the things Bindy isn't. Added to which, things aren't great at home. Bindy's mother who left the family years ago is now trying to forge a closer relationship with her children.
Bindy's brother doesn't want to know - which leaves Bindy stuck in the middle. And Bindy's dad has started dating Janie's mum. This is a book about being yourself, even if other people think you should be someone different.
It's also about how to renegotiate the relationships around you when circumstances change.
