Have You Seen Ally Queen?
Written by Deb Fitzpatrick
Ally Queen, aged fifteen, is the new kid in a very small town. Life is tough when your closest friend is miles away and deep and meaningful conversations are restricted to the length of a text message. And Ally needs a friend. Her mum is suffering post-traumatic stress disorder and the quiet country life, which was meant to help things, just seems to make them worse.
When she meets Rel the annoying boy next door, it seems she’s hit rock bottom. But first impressions can be deceptive and, as Ally learns to relax, she discovers that life needn’t be as hard as she makes it.
