Into their world comes Listen Taylor - a girl who is about to enter high school, and social isolation.

Enter Cath Murphy, a young teacher at the primary school that Cassie Zing attends, who is suffering from a broken heart.

How will the two worlds of these two young women connect with the delightful madness that is the family Zing? Only the reader can know!
