A Moon Girl Stole My Friend

By Rebecca Patterson

A funny and sweet story about friendship and fallouts with a difference. It's 2099, and Lyla lives in a world of robocats and flying sweets. When a new girl arrives from the Moon colony, she steals Lyla's best friend . . .

But Lyla’s problems lead her into unexpected adventures . . .
