I found my tribe in my daughters - they are my favourite people in the world. They brought sparkle back in to my life, and helped me find the stars I thought I'd lost along the way.

Who will she find? Can she fit in with the people she meets on the way? But it is only when she decides to be herself and do the things that make her happy, that her true friends will find her!
