Fifteen-year-old Annabel "Barbie Brain" Bairstow and her best friend Lucy are facing the long summer holiday without enthusiasm. What's the use of being the best-looking girls in town when there are no boys to notice them? Then Sebastian appears...Seventeen years old, handsome, self-confident, Sebastian is the son of local businessman Frank Houseman, a close friend of Annabel's mother. Brought up in America by his aunt and uncle, Sebastian is visiting England for the first time. His sudden arrival has the impact of a bombshell on the boy-free zone. Already trying to come to terms with her parents' divorce, Annabel finds herself confronted by some alarming surprises. Perhaps most surprising of all, though, is the discovery of the power that lies in her own hands...
