Twelve-year-old Willa Havisham loves the sea, and books, and eating chocolate-coated cherries. But what she'd love more than anything is a dad. It's a shame her mum, Stella, is so unromantic - even though she's a wedding planner! So when Stella falls for the poet next door, Willa can't believe her luck. But then everything starts to go wrong . . . Can Willa put things right and get her mum to say, 'I do'? 'A fun, frothy confection that made me laugh out loud' Meg Cabot, author of THE PRINCESS DIARIES
