Sophie Miller knows she’s not cool and is dreading starting secondary school. Her worst fears prove founded when she’s targeted by bully Demelza Rice on her first day. To add to her problems, her family are seriously embarrassing.

Parents’ night arrives and, just as she predicts, they completely humiliate her. As Sophie struggles to stand up to her enemy, everything seems to unravel: her mum gets a job, making her feel abandoned, her best friend’s mum runs away and, worst of all, her best friend starts going out with Sophie’s brother. Feeling desperate, she acts out of character and lands herself in trouble, but the question is, will Sophie be brave enough when it really matters?

This is a story that proves it’s OK to be different and shows that with a little help from friends and family you can achieve anything.
