This year, everything will be different. Fiona is about to turn twelve - older than her sister was. This summer, Fiona will save some money, make new friends, and finally have some fun at The Fair.

But what she'll actually do is: - Find a mysterious bag in a bush - Spy on everyone - Lose her only friend - Make a lot of lists - Learn the truth about what happened at The Fair...
