Alison Allbright has always sought refuge in day dreams – of having a glamorous mother and a lovely home, of being an exciting person, of doing all the things that the others at high school do – and more. When Mrs Considine appears, spinning her amazing web of fantasy and making those dreams come true, Alison is completely bewitched….until she discovers the catch.
