Making peace with the past and friends for a lifetime. Elly is sent by her father to stay with her Aunt Dina on Sunday Island for the whole summer. With no friends, Elly is bored. So when she receives a mysterious invitation for a midnight meeting, she sneaks out of the house, only to stumble into a bemused girl called Sierra, who is just as lost as Elly. A helpful little dog leads them into an overgrown maze ...where a grinning girl called Tash meets them. 'I thought a midnight feast would be a great start to our summer on Mystery Island!' The three girls have a lot of fun together, swimming, eating ice creams and exploring the island. By chance, the girls discover that their pasts are linked. But an old mystery involving buried treasure threatens their friendship. Will the girls be able to solve the mystery and remain friends?show more

About Ellen Richardson

Ellen Richardson grew up in Missouri, USA. Her long, hot summer holidays were full of barbeques, homemade ice cream, watermelon and twilight evenings spent catching lightning bugs in order to let them go and watch them spiral into the air like sparks from a bonfire. All the time she was growing up, she longed to see the ocean, and finally did on a school trip when she was the same age as Elly, Tash and Sierra. Ellen now lives in England with her family, and every summer, they spend as much time as they can by the sea. Her love for British islands is a big part of the joy of writing the Flip-Flop books. On her first trip to the Isles of Scilly, she fell in love with the small whiskery dog of one of the boatmen: a proper seadog who trotted around the boat with a cocky assurance that charmed her. Ellen has been waiting ever since for a chance to write about Mojo!show more
