Fun, feisty Eva Gordon's never been one to shy away from helping her friends - whether they want her help or not - but this time she might have found a problem that's too big even for her....
When Eva and her family head to Seacove for their summer holidays, she's looking forward to seeing Kate again, but it turns out things have gone very wrong for Kate. Her granny's in the hospital, and with no else to look after her, Kate's hiding out at home by herself, afraid she's going to be taken into care. Eva tries to be a good friend and help her out, but how long can a 12-year-old manage by herself?
It's not just Kate who needs Eva's help, though helping Ruby turns out to be a lot more fun! Ruby needs Eva to keep her company on a trip to London, where she's trying out for a scholarship. Is there any way the trip away with Ruby can help everyone sort things out? It seems impossible, but if you have a problem that needs solving, just leave it to Eva!
