Annabel, Again

By Meg McKinlay

A humorous and touching middle-grade novel about the changing shape of friendship by multiple-award-winner Meg McKinlay.

Livvy and Annabel have been best friends forever. Together, they’ve survived kamikaze magpies, wacky mothers and a nemesis named Summer. Together, they’ve carried their netball team all the way to the finals. When Annabel moves away, Livvy is crushed. At her mum’s insistence she embarks on a fast-track plan for moving on, for forgetting Annabel. Because what else can you do when someone’s gone forever? And what can you do when, one year later, they come back? When they walk into class as if they were never even gone and sit down next to your nemesis? When it’s Annabel, again, but nothing seems the same?
