Product description

Sunset lives a life of luxury with her beautiful ex-model mum, her world-famous rock star dad and her two little celebrity siblings. But life on the red carpet is no compensation for parents who constantly argue, intensive scrutiny from the media, and and having no real friends. Destiny, on the other hand, is an only child living on a rundown estate with a sickly but devoted mum who constantly tells her that she's really the daughter of a famous rock star ...When the two girls meet in unlikely circumstances, they are surprised to find in each other something they've been missing all their lives ...

Review quote

"[The] two narrators transcend their circumstances. They draw us into their story so that we are rooting for them rather than being dragged down by the challenges they face" -- Annalise Taylor Carousel "This story immediately grabs the reader, drawing them into the lives of both main characters and keeping them engrossed throughout with a few surprises on the way" -- D J Williams Primary Times
