Part of the Hodder story book series
"It's crazy, starting at a new school. For days, you feel so new and lost it's as if you've wandered into a foreign country where you can't speak the language." This haunting story about Rafaella, the new girl at school who finds making friends hard, is a stunning piece of writing.
With her strange name and sticking out ears she's different from the rest.
Lucy is the first to tease, the first to call her 'Earwig'.
Until a secret friendship starts, full of warmth and mystery...
