Questo epub è sviluppato in formato FXL (Fixed Layout).
Reissued for the Originals series of powerful teen fiction.
Nobody wants Tulip in their gang.
She skives off school, cheeks the teachers and makes herself unpopular with her classmates by telling awful lies.
None of this matters to Natalie who finds Tulip exciting.
At first she doesn't care that other people are upset and unnerved by Tulip's bizarre games, but as the games become increasingly sinister and dangerous, Natalie realises that Tulip is going too far.
Much too far.
Racing, in fact, to the novel's shocking ending.
For three of the four have heard a nasty rumour about Liddy’s new man and Bridie, a social worker, insists that Liddy must be told. The decision proves disastrous in ways that no one could possibly have imagined. Out creep the secrets and lies that once held the family together and are about to split it viciously apart. With surgical precision and wry intelligence Anne Fine exposes the claustrophobic and potentially duplicitous nature of close family relationships, and the final revelations are more than anyone bargained for.

But when Ben starts to take Alice’s advice, he realises that she might have a point and discovers that sitting next to her isn’t so bad after all.

How did this child get such a gift for stamping on other people’s shadows? And can Marcia stay cool enough to make the right decision about the next step in young Tansy’s life?
