Lula and Lenka are best friends and total opposites - Lula is a Dog Person and Lenka is a Cat Person; Lula is super messy and Lenka is neat and tidy; Lula likes talking to people and Lenka likes watching people - but together they make the perfect pair. Until The Day that Everything Goes Wrong ... and suddenly the girls are no longer friends. What started as a day like any other ends with Lula and Lenka ignoring each other and sitting on opposite sides of the classroom. As the days go by Lula makes a new friend who talks almost as much as she does, while Lenka just plays on her own. In spite of feeling lonely, neither one is prepared to listen or forgive ... or to say sorry. Will it be this way forever?A thoughtful story exploring friendship and the importance of listening and keeping an open mind.


Polly studied English at Birmingham University. Her novels have been nominated for the Carnegie Medal twice, the Blue Peter Book Award and the Waterstones Children's Book Prize. Polly lives with her husband in Bristol. Binny recently returned from living in Asia where she completed her children's book ORIGAMI HEART. Binny now works on Sydney harbour with other creative folks drinking copious amounts of dandelion tea, and getting inspiration from Jasper the smokey blue cat.
