Can Hannah stop her friends from drifting apart?

'I feel like I'm losing my best mate . . .'

Hannah and Joey have been best friends forever - just the two of them. But when Joey's new foster brother, Paul, turns up, everything changes. First Joey falls for Hannah's brother, Kit. Then Paul complicates things - with some kittens, a chocolate bar and a stripy pink bicycle.

Hannah's world is turning upside down. Can you rescue a friendship when it's drowning? Can you save a friend in trouble - if they don't want to be saved?

    I just finished reading this book and it made me cry. It's amazing and emotional, one of my favourite books now definitely.

  • Mari, age 33

    Though I am older than most of the readers, I still could not put the book away and read it for hours. I am an English teacher and kind of proof-read books for my students :) I really enjoyed reading "Driftwood". Suggest it to all the ones who love romantics, the sea and dreaming. Very good for those who have to handle bullying problems!

Hello planet!

Coco here! I’m afraid on top of ALL of the worlds other problems (global warming, saving the pandas…

I could go on!) we’ve also been having a few problems with spam comments – it’s probably just my mental sisters messing about…

But ANYWAY, to post your comment, simply put my first name (Coco) in the box below!

Lots of love,
