Annotation

Maeve is 14-years-old and finds it hard coming from so many cultures - part Irish, part Chinese and part Australian. She has an Irish father who does not know she exists. She is relatively happy with her friends Steph and Bianca and her younger brother until her mother dies suddenly in a car crash and she goes to live with her strict Chinese grandparents. Then Maeve feels lost and goes in search of a family and a place where she can belong.
