Half a Sister
Hannah’s thrilled when she discovers that Dad has another daughter, Ellie – which means she has a long-lost half sister! And when Ellie’s mum goes into hospital, Ellie comes over from Paris to stay with Hannah’s family. At first, Hannah loves having a sister. She’s always hated being the only child in her boring, normal family, and Ellie is ultra-cool, ultra-glam and ultra-fun! But when Ellie’s exotic, hippyish upbringing clashes with Hannah’s conventional family life, it soon becomes clear that ‘happy families’ may not be such an easy game to play… Before long, Hannah is desperate to have her dull family life back, so she hatches a plan to pack Ellie off to Paris. But it’s only when she meets Ellie’s troubled mother that Hannah comes to appreciate just how special her ‘boring’, ‘normal’ family really are… A funny and moving story of families, friendships, and finding ways to make them work.
