Meet eleven-year-old Pea and her definitely not ordinary life . . .
Sisters Clover, Pea, and Tinkerbell have always been beans-on-toast, hand-me-down-wellies sorts of girls. But when their dizzy but dazzling single mum becomes Marina Cove, author of the bestselling Mermaid Girls books, everything changes. It’s time to leave their tiny flat in Tenby for a proper house in London, and a whole new life.
Pea likes the raspberry-red front door, and the attic bedroom all to herself. She even likes her hideous new school uniform, in a masochistic Malory Towers sort of way. But there’s an empty chair beside her in every lesson, and no one seems to want to fill it. In the absence of volunteers, Pea is going to have to acquire herself a best friend . . .
