Fierce, loud, energetic and determined, Zofia loves her life by the sea with her Dad. She loves her friends and the trips to the beach after school, fearlessly diving into the waves.
Tom couldnt be more different. Having escaped from domestic violence, Tom and his mum live in a little flat in the city. Tom is frightened, quiet and timid, finding comfort in folding paper into beautiful birds and filling his room with lights to keep out the dark.
When Tom's mum and Zofias dad fall in love, its a shock to both children. These reluctant new step-siblings have absolutely nothing in common. Zofias worried about being replaced by her Dads new girlfriend and her son, which makes her mean and bitter towards Tom; Tom just wants his Mum to be happy after what shes been through, though hes mistrustful of Zofias Dad, and shrinks into himself to avoid being noticed.
As the children try to get used to their new lives, tragedy threatens to strike. Both Tom and Zofia are forced to reassess what is truly important and what makes a family.-- Booktrust
