Abstract(s): Three years ago, 11-year-old Bella did something she was ashamed of during her English grandparents' last visit to Australia. Now all the guilty feelings of those years are crystallised by their latest visit to the family. Christmas week is totally spoiled for Bella as she wavers between defiance and secrecy, and wishes for honesty and openness. Bella's learning to accept the differences of her aunt very close to her own age, provides glimpses into the ways families work. The unexpected solution to her own dilemma comes in a twist at the end of this engaging story.
