Lia has everything -- a glamorous home and family, good friends, great looks and brains -- and she has remained kind and unpretentious in spite of it. However, when she pulls the school heart throb in a game of Truth, Dare, Kiss or Promise, she alienates 'teen queen' Kaylie who was after Jonno for herself. Kaylie and her friends start a campaign of bullying against her -- the nasty, underhand kind where rumours are spread, threats sent, secrets exposed and confidence undermined. Soon Lia begins to question everything -- who she really is, why these girls have got it in for her and who her real friends are !
Cathy Hopkins is the author of the incredibly successful Mates, Dates and Truth, Dare books. She spends most of her time locked in a shed at the bottom of the garden pretending to write books but is actually in there listening to music, hippie dancing and talking to her friends on email. Occasionally she is joined by Molly, the cat who thinks she is a copy editor and likes to walk all over the keyboard rewriting and deleting words she doesn't like. Apart from that, Cathy has joined the gym and spends more time than is good for her making up excuses as to why she hasn't got time to go.
