One stormy night, five stranded schoolchildren uncover the story of a boy who many years ago learned what it was like to have a truly wicked stepfather. But the children have stories of their own step-parents to tell – stories that have warmth and humour, as well as sadness, and a fair share of happy endings.

In a hurry to find five pupils to join a school trip to creepy old Harwick Hall, Miss O’Dell, their teacher, picks them from one of the ‘special’ columns on her list. They have little in common, except for two emergency phone numbers: two homes – two families. Arriving at the Hall in a storm, they discover an old manuscript hidden in a sealed room. Richard Clayton Harwick, long dead and gone, has left a record of the sheer wickedness of his stepfather. The children listen, enraptured, to his account. But Richard’s is not the only story they will be hearing in the dark, towering mansion ...

'Fine has a rare genius for building a funny, enriching and moving story around the nuts and bolts of school life.'
The Times

‘For children who have some similar experience, this novel will be therapeutic; for those who haven’t it’s an absorbing read, to make them laugh and cry.'
Sunday Telegraph
