When Pea Llewellyn's dizzy but dazzling single mum becomes Marina Cove, author of the bestselling "Mermaid Girls" books, everything changes. It's time to leave their tiny flat in Tenby for a proper house in London, and a whole new life. Pea likes the red front door, and the attic bedroom all to herself. She even likes her hideous new school uniform, in a masochistic Malory Towers sort of way. But there's an empty chair beside her in every lesson, and no one seems to want to fill it. In the absence of volunteers, Pea is going to have to acquire herself a best friend...

Back cover copy

Dear Reader,

Thank you very much for picking up this book. I should warn you now that it is not about mermaids like the books my mum writes. It's about real things, like our Big Move to London, my (sometimes annoying) sisters, and Wuffly the dog. And me - I'm Pea by the way - trying to find a new Best Friend. (That bit is harder than it sounds...)

If you like books that are funny, and are about families who are a bit odd, you should read this. But if you like mermaid books you should try my mum's instead.

Love from Pea xx

About Susie Day

Susie Day grew up in Penarth, Wales, with a lisp and a really unfortunate choice of first name. She has had lots of jobs, including guiding tourists and professional nappy-changing - but she always wanted to be a writer. Her first book, Whump! in which Bill falls 632 miles down a manhole, won the BBC Talent Children's fiction prize, and was published in 2004. Susie now lives in Oxford, England, and eats a lot of cake and drinks a lot of tea.
