AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Janey couldn't wait to see her friends' faces. Imagine, she thought. I have a stalker. Like I'm some kind of A-list celeb or something.

'Who is the sinister 'Fellini', tracking Janey Gordon through cyberspace? And why is he posting warnings to her MySpace page?

'Sixteen-year-old Janey is all alone in the world apart from her trio of best friends ... until she discovers a mysterious letter that leads her to long-lost family, thousands of miles away in Italy.

'So she heads off on a Roman holiday with a suitcase full of glam outfits courtesy of her fashion-addict bestie, Ness, and a list of must-see locations from her film-buff buddy, Em. It should be a time of sun, food, shopping and cute guys - but there's someone shadowing every step she takes.

'Living the sweet life can be a dangerous thing ...'
