With a little bit of help from her scatty, wannabe teenager, Auntie Vee, she even seems to be doing better than her supercool friend Kate who never has a problem attracting boys.
Then she loses her nerve.
Even so, whatever she does, she can’t get away from how much she fancies Ami.
So there are fights, tears, pantomime rehearsals... then things begin to change.

But what is the old fisherman Dogger Brown up to?

Christina Thomas is not coping very well with her newly diagnosed epilepsy. She is coping even less well with the break up with her lovely boyfriend, Jan.

After a while, she no longer knows where she belongs and whether she can ever be truly happy.
The clue to her happiness seems to lie in a mysterious pot she has acquired from her favourite make-up shop, Pandora’s Potions.
