… You are going to be pleasant and helpful, Bee, and not chase Jazzi away. I like Jazzi. I want her to be a permanent fixture in our lives and I don’t want any bratty, selfish behaviour from you spoiling things ...
Since Bee’s mother died, it’d been just her, her dad and her guinea pigs, Lulu and Fifi. Nothing stays the same forever though, and when Jazzi moves in, bringing with her a whole new way of looking at things and a whole lot of secrets, Bee knows life is going to be completely different from now on.
But change can be a scary thing, and when someone reaches out to you, sometimes the hardest thing to do is to take their hand.
This heartwarming, humorous and vibrant story from award-winning author Catherine Bateson reminds us that love comes in many shapes and sizes … even in the form of guinea pigs.
