She has a cosy, comfy life with her slightly hippy mum and dad by the sea in Cornwall. But as an only child, Maya feels smothered by her parents'' love and longs to be a given more freedom and independence; but what Maya wants more than anything is a sister.Meet Cat. She''s never known her dad and her mum''s an alcoholic and is not capable of looking after herself, let alone her 11 year old daughter. Cat''s spent her life protecting her mum and keeping some dark secrets; all she wants is to be left alone.But Cat and Maya''s worlds collide when Cat is taken into care and Maya''s parents make the life-changing decision to adopt her.
