Billie, Lexie, Ella and Natalie are all 14 years old, living in the fashionable and hip Notting Hill Gate.
They're as different to each other as all four of the Sex and City friends, but that's what makes them such good friends. Lexie's the sporty, practical tomboy, Ella's ever-so-slightly ditzy, but creative fashionista, with a heart of gold; Nat's the witty, self-deprecating hopeless romantic and Billie's the resident musician and Lily Allen-in-the- making.
Each of them have their own set of issues - whether it's school, parents or boys...and support is there, every week at their weekly breakfast catch up in their favourite cafe. In this first book, Billie' s narrative takes the lead, as she and her mum are at loggerheads over Billie's growing obsession with her music and her curiosity over her dad - who she hasn't seen since she was a baby.
On top of that, the girls' favourite cafe has been bought up by property developers and the hunt is on for a new venue! Fashion, fun and friendship surround some familiar issues in this fresh new tween series.
