About the Book

When is it right to do something wrong?
Anna is the well behaved and obedient child of professional parents. Her mother Penelope is a leading research scientist and her father a doctor - and she's been raised in a politically correct nonsmoking vegetarian home, with a solid foundation of firmly held beliefs she has inherited from her parents.However, Anna is shaken to the core when she organizes a school trip to her mother's work and discovers that she experiments on live animals. A sheep is being held on the fourth floor away from all the things that make life good for a sheep - and he will be killed and dissected when the experiment is finished. Horrified with what she now knows, she is further rocked to discover that her father is a secret smoker - despite lecturing his patients on the evils of smoking. What follows is her way of dealing with her own moral dilemma - exciting, funny, poignant and probably illegal. A contempory novel for 9-12 year olds.
