Monday, October 26, 2015

Where did I get it? I bought it at YALC I think. 

What's it about? Ella Samson is an ordinary 17 year old girl, she's at 6th form college, she has divorced parents, she has a best friend called Deeta and an on/off boyfriend called Billy. Except she wakes up one morning and everything is different. Her parents are still together, her best friends are called Rachel and Jen, and even her hair and her room are different. Is she ill? In a parallel universe? If she is, can she get home? Can she find her old friends and Billy? And what's with the old woman who says she knows Ella?
