A humorous, poignant and heartwarming story of four girls and their exasperating parents. Reissued in the Jean Ure branding.
"People always fall out after they're married. I'm going to stay single."
Jasmine, Laurel, Rose and Daisy. Four very different sisters, four very different attitudes! As if living with each other wasn't bad enough, living with their parents is worse - particularly parents who are both actors. Please!
But after the Great Row, the girls find themselves living with Mum, while Dad has gone to America to find work. How are the sisters going to achieve their own personal ambitions: become an actress, model, writer, vet... when they can't even achieve their joint ambition - to reunite parents who are on different continents?
