Book description
Everyone thinks eight-year-old Melanie Wright is timid and shy, but she's not really. It's just that she likes to take her time over new things and new people. Moving to a new house means that she has to do too many things at once - start at a different school, meet the boys next door, and walk to school with Jasmine Hardcastle, who thinks she's a baby - but Melanie meets her problems in her own time and in her own way.

This gentle, funny and perceptive book is about facing fears and making friends.
