This is a feel-good and positive story of Amy, a girl who is struggling with her parents split. Feeling anxious about a new school and having to move to a new house, Amy attends the Sandcastle Support Centre with Mrs Nuala, who nurtures the children's interests in baking and gardening to allow their confidence to grow. Mrs Nuala makes worry angels for the children when they are ready to leave to attend school. At the centre Amy makes friends with Rima, a Syrian refugee, and they form a strong bond, despite the language difficulties. Meanwhile, while focussing on her friendship with Rima, things begin to improve with her father settling into his old cottage. The story concludes with both Amy and Rima being in the same class at school.

This is an excellent story, showing that everyone needs a little support from time to time and with that and friendship things can get better.
