Since Magda moved from Poland to Belfast, her life has been little
more than soggy schooldays and one long ‘Game of Stones’ courtesy of
the local bullies.
Her beloved grandfather shares in her misery. While the other family
members adjust to Irish life, he spends his days in his attic room,
dreaming of Poland. Yet he tells Magda that she must go out there and
seize the opportunities Ireland has to offer.
Then Magda meets Sophie, a new girl who looks set to become the most
popular girl in Belview College, and at last Magda feels she might
manage to fit in.
But when does a friend become an enemy? And when is it OK to let go of
the past and give the future a chance?
