Certainly life is not straightforward for Fiona O'Connell. With her older brother out at work, she is often left in charge at home, dealing with the terror of her little twin sisters, Mona and Rona, and their line-dancing routines. She finds her escape in her books, her art and her blossoming friendship with Jaz, the Sikh boy at school. Then, one day her mother goes into hospital to have her fifth child. And she never comes home.
