Life has returned to routine for Mitch. Mostly. He's had to find a new kind of normal after his dad drowned, saving a local kid. But now there's a new girl in Mitch's class and she's stirring things up. Her name is Max, she dresses a bit like a goth,and suddenly seems to be everywhere.
One night, Mitch sees Max and she looks different. She has... wings. Big feathery wings. Surely he must have dreamt it. But no. It turns out Max is an angel, but not quite how you would imagine one. She is Mitch's emergency rescue angel, and just the kind of friend you want on your side when life gets tricky.
When a man from the government struggles up the mountain where Georgia lives with her family and Trouble, the dragon, it means trouble, and not even with a capital "T". Even though they didn't ask for their house to be stolen and plonked down in a Wildlife Park, Georgia and her family have settled in and want to stay. The man from the government wants to blow up their house!
Nina the New Kid at school thinks that dragons don't exist. Trouble is still banned from the schoolyard, so he can't show her she is wrong. It's no fun when people don't believe in you, but believing in things is good for everyone, as Georgia is about to find out.
Trouble is in trouble at Georgia's school. He has been banned from coming any more. He did a vertical landing in the playground and broke all the asphalt, and there are those burn marks on the oval... And then Georgia has to solve the mystery of Mrs Jones' missing cat, Tibbles.
