When Adamma Okomma has to leave New York for a dusty English boarding school, she thinks it's the end of the world - or the end of her social life, at least. But then she meets the wicked-witted Scarlett Chiltern, who shows her all Crofton College's darkest corners, and Adamma realises that there's much more to her new school than tartan skirts and hockey sticks.
It's only been three months since Lola Durand's mother died, but her father has announced that he's marrying someone else and moving to Paris.

Her father is too in love to see it, though, so when Lola finds out a secret about her, she can't wait to show him who he really married.
