Welcome to the world of Connie Pickles. Best Friend #1 - Julie: Big boobs. Big ideas. Big fibber. Best Friend #2 - William: Giver of chocolate buttons. A shoulder for Connie to cry on. Makes other girls flutter and blush. Best Friend #3 - Delilah: hormone-crazed victim of a girls-only school. Flutters and blushes A LOT. Mother: French. Beautiful. Broke. Bra-expert. A romantic disaster area. Needs help.Connie used to be the only sensible person in her world. But now her life is spiralling out of control. Her mother refuses to fall for the right man, William is acting strangely and Connie's own heart is in tatters. So with a little help (and a lot of hindrance) from her friends, she sets out to solve the eternal mysteries of love, money, French things (including kisses) and incredibly uncomfortable underwear.
