Fourteen-year-old Prue and her sister Grace have been educated at home by their controlling, super-strict father all their lives. Forced to wear Mum's odd hand-made garments and forbidden from reading teenage magazines, they know they're very different to 'normal' girls. But when Dad has a stroke and ends up in hospital, unable to move or speak, Prue suddenly discovers what it's like to have a little freedom.
Sent to a real school for the first time, Prue struggles to fit in. The only person she can talk to is her kindly, young and handsome art teacher, Rax. They quickly bond, and Prue feels more and more drawn to him. As her feelings grow stronger, she begins to realise that he might feel the same way about her. But nothing could ever happen between the, could it?

I love Jacqueline Wilson and if your also a fan of hers than I suggest reading/listening to it, if you don't enjoy her so much than I would choose something else, it was read pretty well. They did voices, which is a bonus.
Jacqueline Wilson's other books are a lot better, definitely try another if you enjoy, or like the look of this, and if you don't try another one of hers their great.
I can't see it being made into a successful one because it is for children 10 and above and I don't see people finding it that interesting.
