Unfortunately Colette doesn't get Abbie's message. She turns up unexpectedly and that's when Abbie's problems start. First of all Colette turns out to be an absolute stunner. She looks more like eighteen than sixteen and Abbie feels young and fat in comparison. Secondly Abbie has fallen in love with the gorgeous Richard Farnham, a young teaching student who is going to do his placement at Abbie's school, but Richard falls for Colette instead, even though Colette claims to be in love with someone else. Abbie is heartbroken, but tries not to let them know how she feels. Can she ever make Richard notice her, or will he be always out of reach?
