Penelope Bush trained and worked as a tapestry weaver, but always knew that one day she would write. She lives in West Sussex with her husband and son and elderly cat. She hides away in an old caravan to do her writing, where the only distraction is the occasional pheasant wandering past. Now and again, the family reclaim the caravan and it is towed down the coast to Dorset, where many happy hours are spent looking for fossils.
Milly's had enough of living in her twin's shadow What happened to Milly last summer? She can't talk about it. Instead, she's writing in her journal. About growing up in the shadow of her twin sister Lily. About the American boy who's moved in upstairs. (There's something he's not telling either.) Milly can't keep her secret forever - can she?
If you could live your life over again, what would you change? Things are at crisis point for 14-year-old Alice. Her mum is ruining her life, her dad's getting remarried and she has to wear a hideous bridesmaid's dress, she can't stand her little brother Rory, and Sasha, the most popular girl at school, hates her guts. Then something very odd happens: Alice falls off a roundabout and finds that she is seven years old again. Reliving the past with her 14-year-old consciousness, she gains a disconcerting new perspective on her family and friendships, and she is forced to confront the truth of her parents' separation and question her former loyalties. Life will never be the same again.
