Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Amy, Bella, Chloe, Daisy and Emily are friends at school and have their own Alphabet Club (just look at their initials ). Daisy is the newest member and is desperate to fit in, even though Chloe is distinctly unfriendly to her at times. Throughout Daisy's first year at the school, the girls plan evermore elaborate sleepover parties for their birthdays. Daisy is dreading the time when her birthday comes round as she doesn't know what her friends will make of sleeping over at her home, with her rather special older sister... A superb handling of both the intricacies of young, female friendship and the joys and problems of having an older sister with learning disabilities, from our most accomplished and bestselling author.

<opt> <anon I1="BLANK" I2="BLANK">"Guess what!" said Amy. "It's my birthday next week and my mum says I can invite all my special friends for a sleepover party." "Great," said Bella. "Fantastic," said Chloe. "Wonderful," said Emily. I didn't say anything. I just smiled. Hopefully. I wasn't sure if I was one of Amy's special friends. Amy and Bella were best friends. Chloe and Emily were best friends. I didn't have a best friend yet at this new school. Well, it wasn't quite a new school, it was quite old, with winding stairs and long polished corridors and lots and lots of classrooms, some of them in Portakabins in the playground. I still got a bit lost sometimes. The very first day I couldn't find the girls' toilets and went hopping round all playtime, getting desperate. But then Emily found me and took me to the toilets herself. I liked Emily sooooo much. I wished she could be my best friend. But she already had Chloe for her best friend. I didn't think much of Chloe. I liked Amy and Bella though. We'd started to go round in a little bunch of five, Amy and Bella and Emily and Chloe and me. We formed this special secret club. We called ourselves the Alphabet Girls. It's because of our names. I'm Daisy. So our first names start with A B C D and E. I was the one who spotted this. The secret club was all my idea too. I always wanted to be part of a special secret club. It was almost as good as having a best friend.
