Sixteen-year-old Janey is all alone in the world apart from her trio of best friends...until she discovers a mysterious letter that leads her to long-lost family, thousands of miles away in Italy. So she heads off on a Roman holiday with a suitcase full of glam outfits courtesy of her fashion-addict bestie, Ness, and a list of must-see locations from her film-buff buddy, Em. It should be a time of sun, food, shopping and cute guys - but there's someone shadowing every step she takes. Living the sweet life can be a dangerous thing...
