Publisher's Summary

Helly Johnston is miserable. Her mother is thinking of marrying again, but Helly doesn’t want a stepfather, certainly not this one. She sobs her way out of the classroom all the way down to the cloakroom and the depths of despondency. There, forceful Kitty Killin comes to the rescue.

Kitty’s not known for sensitivity or tact, but she’s been through it all herself - her mother married the silver-haired, chocolate-bearing, goggle-eyed Gerald. Kitty begins to unfold her tale of how her mother seems so changed by Gerald’s presence, of how her little sister takes to him at once, and how Old Goggle-Eyes remains a perpetual thorn in Kitty’s side.

Good read

Good story, but when the book needs a Scottish accent, please use a Scot, nothing against Jane Asher as a narrator, but an English person doing a Scottish accent grates.
