When her parents announce the family is going on the Holiday of a Lifetime instead of renovating the kitchen, Anna is convinced it will be one Potential Disaster after another. She wants to believe the lucky seahorse charm her gran gave her will be protection enough but when her gran falls ill and her dad must fly home, Anna begins to question her belief in luck. It's in Finland when the thing Anna has feared most actually happens - A Real Life and Death Situation - and it's up to Anna to save her brother and sister.
Megan is a thirteen-year-old teenage girl, who realises that she has psychic powers that others do not have. At first, she tried to talk to her mother about them, but with disastrous consequences, so she learned to keep quiet about them. However, some people do offer to help and an animal showed a special friendship, but they were not 'alive' in the normal sense of the word. They had passed on. Megan has three such friends: Wacinhinsha, her Spirit Guide, who had been Sioux in his last life on Earth; her maternal grandfather, Gramps and a huge Siberian tiger called Grrr. Wacinhinsha is extremely knowledgeable in all things spiritual, psychic and paranormal; her grandfather is a novice 'dead person' and Grrr can only speak Tiger, as one might imagine and most of that, of course is unintelligible to humans. In 'Megan Goes on Holiday', the family goes on holiday abroad and Megan becomes besotted with the place. On her return home, she makes a bit of a fool of herself by pretending to be what she is not and showing off. However her mother and a few others bring her back to reality Wacinhinsha gives her an explanation for her recent infatuation with her holiday destination.
It was a very warm morning in June. Edna and her friend Dorothy Evans were sitting under the trees trying to keep cool. They both wore their thinnest morning frocks and had pinned their hair up in little pug knots on the tops of their heads. They had their boxes of pieces and were trying to make something suitable for their dolls to wear in the hot weather.
