Velvet S Pye stood outside the gates of Yarrabank High and a creeping feeling came over her. This was going to be the worst day, the beginning of a miserable year, in fact the rest of her life was destined to be a complete write-off. She used to have it all - private school, luxury holidays, loads of friends - but then her world fell apart, sending her crashing to grubby, sports-mad Yarrabank High. Could things get any worse? Sure they could. Velvet is yet to meet her cultural studies class.
