A classically heartwarming Catherine Bateson story, reissued with a stunning new cover

For Magenta McPhee, life is good. It would be almost perfect if she could sort out her dad, who quite possibly needs saving - from himself.

Desperate times call for desperate measures, even if those measures involve identity fraud on a dating site, and replying, as your father, to emails he doesn't even know he's been getting.

But when pretending to be someone else is taking you away from your life's purpose - writing the next great fantasy novel - things might have gone too far.

In MAGENTA MCPHEE, Catherine Bateson has once again created a cast of delightfully real characters who will stay in the reader's memory long after the last page is turned.
