Pixie, Robbo, Claudia, Colin and Ralph all have one thing in common - two emergency numbers for two different homes. Thrown together for the night in a tower of creepy, dark old Harwick Hall, each child tells his or her own story, mirroring the feelings about living in the modern step-family.
One stormy night, five stranded schoolchildren uncover the story of Richard Clayton Harwick a boy who many years ago learned what it was like to have a truly wicked stepfather. But the children have stories of their own step-parents to tell stories that have warmth and humour, as well as sadness, and a fair share of happy endings. For children who have some similar experience, this novel will be therapeutic; for those who haven t it s an absorbing read, to make them laugh and cry Sunday Telegraph."
