Im Zickzackkurs zur Liebe

A Zigzag Course to Love

A perfect match: sewing and the sea

Carlotta has to spend the summer holidays in a little fishing village by the North Sea – on her Aunt Ruthie’s old boat of all things! Luckily for Carlotta, who loves sewing, her aunt runs a tailor’s shop there. She even starts a sewing club with her new friends and spends the summer between the gulls and the sea, and her sewing machine. But her happiness is clouded when she finds out that Aunt Ruthie is in difficulties. Can Carlotta and her friends help? And then there’s Pepe, the sensitive boy with the beautiful dark eyes - what’s the secret he is so keen to keep?

Perfect summer holiday reading for girls, featuring the sea, do-it-yourself ideas and some thrilling heartthrob moments, plus sewing instructions for beach bag & co.
