Stella Moon isn't much for change. Why else would she have left her hometown to study music in London only to scurry back to teach scales to overgrown brats and the occasional curious adult? But sometimes you can't escape change, especially when it's staring you in the face (like, for instance, your boyfriend walking out on you), nipping at your heels (new kids next door who've decided your house is more fun to play at than theirs), whispering in your ear (sexy stranger who shows up in unexpected places) and knocking on your door (the return of Dad, who's had more than a few falls from TV chef grace).With the world bearing down on her, it looks as if Stella has no choice but to embrace change and see where it takes her.
