Dixie, Rochelle, Jude and Martine - the Diamond girls! They might sound like a girl band but these sisters' lives are anything but glamorous. They've moved into a terrible house on a run-down estate and after barely five minutes Rochelle's flirting, Jude's fighting and Martine's storming off. Even though Dixie's the youngest, she's desperate to get the house fixed up before Mum comes home with her new baby. Will the Diamond girls pull together in time for the first Diamond boy?

Another hit novel for older readers from the bestselling Jacqueline Wilson - with a new introduction written by the author!
