Meet Verity Fibbs: daughter of hip fashion designer Saffron Fibbs, online gaming expert extraordinaire and compulsive liar...As the saying goes 'when the mother's away the girls do play' that's exactly what Verity does while her mother is away for 3 days but freedom is not something she gets too often so when she does, things get just a little out of control in the real world and she must resort to her online gaming skills to survive...

Synopsis

Verity Fibbs by Cathy Brett

Reality can never quite compare with the online world of Demon Streets for Verity. There she gets to learn new demon fighting skills and have fun. In reality she goes to school to learn useless skills and her fashion designer mother, Saffron Fibbs, is operating punishment by chores (for a small boy related misdemeanor). As ethical is the new black when it comes to fashion, Verity's mum's recycled fashion venture is the hottest thing ever and she has to go to New York to publicise it giving Verity three days of total freedom!
