AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'"Bring problems to us before they're too big to handle " the principal advises Zo when she arrives at her new school. But good advice isn't much help to Zo. Her mum's still a workaholic and her best friend is still a thousand miles away back home. Zo soon teams up with fifteen-year-old Missy who is cheeky, smart, a mean soccer player and believes in magic. She's all muscles and attitude like a cattle dog on the warpath. Zo is more laid back - having money makes for a bigger comfort zone even if you are fat and black. A showdown can't be far away when Zo's and Missy's worlds collide.' Source: Publisher's blurb.
