From the Publisher:

Pete Fortune is used to moving around. But now he's moving back to his father's old home in New Zealand, and Pete is nervous about meeting all his Fortune cousins.

Things look bad when they move into the new house. His cousins say he's not a "real Fortune." But Pete is determined to prove himself. Can he pass the initiation test to join the Good Fortunes Gang?

From AudioFile:

Typical childhood dilemmas-- moving, new friends and proving oneself--are dealt with in this well-read tale produced in the no-frills style of Chivers. Although Mitchley makes a good attempt at it, the various child characters are often difficult to distinguish. For this reason, the story is not a natural for audio. With some research the real tune to "The Prune Song," which plays a critical role in the plot, could have been used. Instead, the tune is made up. Admittedly this is a small point, but details like this make the difference between a good and an excellent production. A.M. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
