Ant (short for Antonia) is sure she is adopted. She does not look anything like her mother or her sisters - or even her Dad who is away working too much. Ant's best friend is a boy called Harrison who draws chickens, her dog Pistachio, an ageing tiny chihuahua, is her constant companion and she feels that she just doesn't fit in. Ant's life is meandering along until one day when her lying starts to cause her, and those around her, some rather serious problems and Ant has to face up to some of the things she has been trying to hide from including why she doesn't get on with her mother. A wonderful, uplifting and very special book that is a truly exciting and original story.
