Description of this Book

Stevie is the girl no-one notices - she doesn't go to parties and she doesn't have friends over. Besides, even if anyone tried to call on her they'd discover that no. 56 isn't her house at all - it's her decoy house, where she tells people to pick her up and drop her off so she can hide who she really is and where she really lives. And she certainly doesn't have a best friend because having friends means opening up, telling the truth and there is one secret she can never risk revealing again. But when Tanvi turns up, Stevie starts to put other things before her secret first - like her love of singing, her budding friendship with the adorable Tanvi - and it's only a matter of time before everything comes out and everything changes! Sometimes it's better to be lonely because having friends in your life can mean revealing more secrets than you would ever want to.
