A young girl is thrown into small town living after a move from the big city. Her family split apart, an ipod with no wifi, and new friendships to build – how will 11 year old Amber cope?
Gran suggests a good old fashioned pen pal to ease the boredom, and a friendship which started out with a few little fibs soon gets out of control! Will pen pal Millie find out ‘The Truth About Amber'? Amber may be in more trouble than she bargained for!
Amber's multi-generational family - an inventive Grandad, a Grandma who is an adventurous cook, and a mum who's trying her best whilst enduring separation and maybe even divorce - make up this tale of coming of age and forgiveness. Oh! and then there's the boy with his great big lolloping shaggy dog who lives nearby.
