"What can I tell you about the Crab Shack Cafe? Well, first of all it's not a shack and crab isn't on the menu. In fact, soon, it might not be a cafe at all, and that means one thing... DISASTER! PLUS - Eddie and Susannah have fallen out - Cooper and Abigail are hanging around with that ROTTEN Gilby Flynn - and Elsie's life seems to be falling apart. And would you believe it - our school project is ONLY to make the world a better place - as if we didn't have enough on our plates. We're all in BIG, BIG TROUBLE."
Trouble at the Crab Shack Café introduces a new heroine: eleven year old Ellie Booton; quirky, funny, a thinker, a doer, a bit of a worrier. And who wouldn't be? Moving with her family into her grandma's house by the sea means starting over: new school, new friends, new life. That's a tall order by anyone's standards.
Gilby Flynn casts a shadow over school and home life is a bumpy ride - but when Ellie teams up with Elsie, things start to look up. It's summer and the Crab Shack Café looks like it will be a haven - until things start to go horribly wrong. The weather is AWFUL. Seagulls screech, the wind howls, and there’s TROUBLE in the air. And who is the solemn boy in the blue jacket?
Atmospheric, thoughtful and heart warming, this funny story, told by Ellie, delves into life at its trickiest.
