Funny, engaging and wise, this novel from the one and only Elizabeth Honey is the third adventure involving Henni and the Stella Street mob. On holiday in a remote old house by the beach, Henni finds that being a teenager is more complicated than being a kid.
The Stella Street mob is off to remote Cauldron Bay, and everything promises to be blissful in the fascinating old wooden house by the beach, until a new girl is foisted on them. Tara is sophisticated, fashionable and into boys especially the wild surfies. Henni just wants to play and have the kind of holiday they ve always had, but now she has to look out for Tara, and her holiday is in danger of being wrecked.
Following the success of 45 + 47 Stella Street and Fiddle-back, Elizabeth Honey takes us on another adventure with Henni, Danielle, Zev, Frank, Briquette and the others, but this time it s not so clear just who are the goodies and who are the baddies. As Henni turns thirteen, she learns that people are not always what they seem.
Elizabeth Honey writes with the invigorating energy of a salty wind off the sea that wakes you up and makes you see the world afresh. Warm-hearted, funny, touching and wise, this is wonderful story about growing up and living life to the full.
