We don’t always know what others want, and sometimes not even what we ourselves need. And parents want what they believe might be best; not what would be best.
Hannah wants peace and quiet at home, and isn’t getting it, because her parents ‘know best’ regarding her older sister and her future. Her friends seem to have lost interest in what Hannah needs. Then, one day she finds a diary in the park, and reading it – to see if she can find out whose it is – she discovers someone really interesting. Someone cool, but also sad.
A bit of detective work sends Hannah and her sister Victoria to a spot where maybe she’ll find Sami Star. We all need each other, and that’s something the girls discover.
Great little story by Karen McCombie about friendship and learning what’s important in life. And that goes for parents too.
