The Mixed-Up Summer of Lily McLean
Also available as: Paperback
I get a FREE holiday, all on my own! (Except for Gran.)
Thatâs a whole week without my moany, vampire-obsessed
teenage sister or my little brother - the terrible twosome.
I get to miss my primary school Leaversâ Dance and avoid
wearing my sisterâs ghastly hand-me-down pink dress!
Reasons why this is the WORST summer ever:
Marshmallow ice cream canât f ix everything. (Yes, seriously!)
Iâve made a new friend who tells me ALL her secretsâ¦ but I
canât tell her mine.
My secret? Iâm hearing a voice, and either Iâm being
haunted or Iâm going crazy. And I donât know which is worseâ¦
