Encouraging links between students and school staff around the globe
It was the only one in the charity shop but Sky knew immediately she had to have it. There was a sticker on its dear stubby nose. £1.50. All the money she had in her purse.
Would she get into trouble?
She glanced over her shoulder. Mum was looking through the books and Emma was pushing hangers on the jeans rail, looking bored as usual. Emma used to be good fun and join in everything with Sky and Mum and Dad before she turned twelve.
But that was before Dad left, six months ago, taking their seven garden gnomes with him.
Sky turned back to the cheery, brightly painted figure on the shelf. He was a fishing gnome, her favourite, with a red cap which hung down at the back just like Happy. Sky had named Dad’s gnomes after the dwarfs in Snow White.
It was her tenth birthday in a week. If she bought the gnome, would something change?
