Driftwood by Cathy Cassidy is a touching, utterly brilliant novel for girls aged 9+
'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?
Can Hannah stop her friends from drifting apart?
