Description

From the author of P is for Pearl comes a heart-warming book about family, friendship and what home can mean.


Stella may only be seventeen, but having read every self-help book she can find means she knows a thing or two about helping people. She sure wasn't expecting to be the one in need of help, though.

Thanks to her father's gambling addiction, Stella and her family now find themselves living at Fairyland Caravan Park. And hiding this truth from her friends is hard enough without dealing with another secret. Stella's birth mother has sent her a letter.

As Stella deals with the chaos of her family, she must also confront the secrets and past of her 'other' family. But Stella is stronger than she realises.

From the author of P is for Pearl comes a heart-warming book about family, friendship and what home can mean.


PRAISE FOR HOW TO GROW A FAMILY TREE

'This engaging novel for young adults doesn't sugar-coat the difficult sides of life but it has substantial stretches of hope and beauty. It covers a lot of social ground, from such topics as adoption and financial trouble to the full awfulness of addiction [...] but the plot and characters are always paramount' -- The Age
