Overview

Binny's life has been difficult since her father died and her dreadful old Aunt Violet disposed of her beloved dog, Max. Her world changed then, to a city flat with not enough space for her Mum, her big sister Clem and her small brother James. Definitely no room for a pet. Then one day Aunt Violet dies, leaving a small cottage in Cornwall to Binny and her family. Binny finds herself in a new world once more, full of sunshine and freedom and Gareth, the enemy-next-door and the ideal companion for dangerous dares. But Max is still lost in the past, and it seems impossible that she'll ever find him again...

Author

Born in Boston, Lincolnshire, Hilary McKay read voraciously from an early age and grew up in a household of readers. After studying Botany and Zoology at St Andrews University she went on to work as a biochemist, but always had a burning desire to write. After the birth of her two children, she decided to give it a go. Hilary now lives in a small village in Derbyshire with her family. When not writing Hilary loves walking, reading, having friends to stay and receiving letters from children.
