Half a Sister
A half sister is better than none - or is it?!
I'm really excited about this book because after the Totally Lucy series (which I SO lurved writing too!) I wanted to tell a more serious, darker story about sisters, friendship, lies, betrayal and finding the courage to be yourself. And here it is!
Karen McCombie called it 'a tense and touching tale or two sisters' and bit her nails down reading it cos of all the massively dramatic twists and turns. Cool or what?! And Cathy Cassidy says it's 'a warm and gripping read about truth, lies and learning to trust.' Wow! I SO love their books, I'm thrilled that they loved mine too!
So girls, grab your fave choccie bar (Curly Wurlys in my case!) and settle down with this tale of two sisters who threaten to tear each other's lives apart.
And don't forget to send in a review or message, I'd love to know what you think!
Lots of love, Kellyxxx
