Middle grade school adventure.
Emily is in her second year at West End Academy, struggling to come to terms with her brother Robbie’s near fatal road accident and her increasingly distant mother. Everything around her is changing and so is she. The behaviour of little Jacob Gilbert whom Emily vowed to protect is leaving her feeling worthless and a failure. She is racked by guilt and self-doubt but begins to discover her identity and strength she never knew she had.
The arrival of new teachers at school, with a very different way of teaching, inject laughter, encouragement for Emily and her small group of friends, struggling with the onset of their teenage years.
While lost on an hilarious, school camping trip, the small group are forced to come face to face with their worst fears – but how will they cope with the reality?
