Gina is back from spending her summer holidays in LA - and straight into a hectic new term at St Jude's, her stuffy but weirdly fun Scottish boarding school.
Her budding romance with Dermot, the boy who works in the local cafe, has been fuelled over the summer by emails and phone calls - but now she's back on Scottish soil, their reunion doesn't seem to be going as planned. Is he really the boy for her?
Despite her troubles in love, Gina knows she can count on her dorm buddies to cheer her up. Although Niffy's staying at home to care for her sick mother, she still visits and even invites the Daffodil girls to her stately pile. And Amy and Min are still having troubles of their own. Amy's crush on Jason, the hottest boy at the boys' school up the road, is still going strong - and she has an additional problem of a mini-stalker. And Min's internet romance is hotting up but is she putting herself in danger?
The friends know they have to stick together to get through all these terrible teenage times! And how on earth can they concentrate on hockey tournaments and science class when there's all this, plus parties and nights out to organise too...
