The funny and poignant story of homesick Isla McBay, who has recently moved from Scotland to Australia, where she discovers that a sister with a serious problem puts everything else into perspective. Book 11 in the Girlfriend Fiction series: real life, real emotions, awesome stories.

Just remember, Isla, when you're searching for happiness, it knows all the best hiding places. (Gran McGonnigle)

Isla McBay is not delighted to have left Scotland for sunny Australia. For starters, she can't swim - not great for pool parties. She misses her gran and her friends, her dad's giving her unbelievably irritating driving lessons, and she's constantly fighting with her younger sister, Terry, who always does everything first. Even her photography class with dreamy Sam Doyle and annoying yet intriguing Jack Ferris can't cure Isla's homesickness.

Then Terry comes to Isla with a serious problem, forcing Isla to make a choice: will she be the better sister Terry needs her to be - or will she close her eyes to what's really important?

Author bio:

Mo Johnson was born in Glasgow, Scotland. She met her Australian husband while teaching in Japan and moved to Sydney with him in 1991. She is lucky to live by the beach in spectacular Illawarra (NSW) with her husband Pete and son Paddy and their two dogs, Merlin and Scruffy. She couldn't live without her Apple computers, her iPod and her crime-fiction collection.

Mo loves talking on the phone to her best friend, Auds, in Scotland, making short films, taking photographs, elephants, and people who throw back their heads to belly laugh, especially at themselves. Her phobias are flying, swimming pools, cockroaches and people dressed in animal costumes. When she doodles, Mo draws snails and triangles and people on bicycles. Something More is her second novel for teenagers.
