Daz is in love with Valentine O'Leary, the biggest pig in Mimosa High School. Her brother William is in love with a girl he's never spoken to.

Eleanor Wand, the music teacher, is in love with the headmaster. Everyone is in love with someone - and doing rather badly.

Meanwhile Daz's granny is searching for Bonnie, the long-ago friend of her heart.

Will anyone be successful in the quest for lost friends and true love?
