First love—it will change your life for ever…
Daisy has been dragged along on a family holiday to a small Scottish town against her will. But that’s what happens when you suddenly develop a chronic health condition. Your mum and dad take away your freedom.
Still, the holiday has its compensations. There’s Katrina, resident ‘cool’ girl who takes Daisy under her wing. There are parties to go to, madcap expeditions and the do-far uncharted territory of boys. Katrina has a gorgeous, older cousin who sends smouldering looks in Daisy’s direction.
Is this holiday about to change her life for the better?
The escape from London has affected Daisy’s dad. He has madcap schemes in mind for how he’s going to invest in the town’s small businesses and improve them. But where is all the money for this coming from?
Daisy finds love, a close friendship and freedom in her new life but the secrets that lie buried there are about to surface, and their revelation will be explosive and life-changing.

Here’s what the reviewers said:
“This is such a great story, full of real characters who I could really picture in my head, I felt like I knew all these people by the end if the book, and I’m desperate to know ‘what happened next’, which I don’t get too often.”
