What if you could have a second chance?
All Bluebell Jones wants for her thirteenth birthday is to be someone else: a carefree, confident teenager, like her big sister Tiger. Mum and Dad’s band are playing tiny Welsh seaside town Penkerry all summer long, so this is it: her big chance to transform into a whole new girl, before Mum’s new baby arrives and she’s a big sister too.
But she won’t have to do it alone. When Blue blows out her birthday candle, up pops Red, her fourteen-year-old self: brave, snarky, and surrounded by brilliant friends – Fifties-obsessed Fozzie, Dan the Donut, and the mysterious, charming Merlin. Red’s everything Blue wants to be. With her help from the future, predicting every embarrassing mis-step, Blue’s guaranteed to have the summer of her life.
But Red’s got a secret…
‘Don’t look so appalled, Blue. People lie to themselves all the time.’
