Summary
Pip has one clue about the whereabouts of her birth mother, Cass - an old postcard from Beautiful Byron Bay. She's been settled with the Brownings, who are planning to adopt her-at least, that's until Pip gets into trouble once again! Now, Pip is sure she won't find a home with the Brownings. There's only one place she might belong, and that's with her mother. With her faithful hound Houdini by her side, Pip sets off North, to find out once and for all what became of Cass. It's a journey filled with interesting people, including a mysteriously musical young woman and a friendly, sun-bitten surfer. But as Pip draws ever-closer to Byron Bay, is she prepared for what she will find when she gets there? Once again this girl as skinny as a piece of string proves that adventure is where you choose to find it and a little bit of kindness can go a long way! This is a warm-hearted adventure story about a feisty girl and her escape-artist dog exploring the world

Biographical or historical data
When J.C. Jones was growing up in England, she nearly set the bed on fire when she put the lamp under the sheets so she could read all night. You might think that would put her off books, but no. She still reads a lot and she especially enjoys stories about kids who dare to be different, probably inspired by characters from the tales of magical chocolate factories and enchanted gardens she loved as a child. Today, she lives in Sydney in an old, crumbling - but sadly unhaunted - house, and likes going to the local park to walk her imaginary dog.
