Stella Etc #1: Frankie, Peaches and Me

The essence of feelgood. Love The Chocolate Box Girls? Then you’ll adore this sunny series about a girl and her new life by the sea. Stella and her (mildly crazy) family have just moved from buzzy London to the slee-e-e-epy seaside town of Portbay. Not only has she left her best mate Frankie behind. She’s also kissed goodbye to Seb, the guy she’s liked since forever. Still, Portbay has its own charms. Luckily, Stella has acquired a rather cute and furry buddy to help her find her feet…
