“Jumping to Confusions: Cat is fat and boring – or so she thinks. Her mum is a stick insect and so is her twin sister Tessa – a bit of a spoilt brat who can get any boy she wants. There’s a new arrival in their town from the USA – Josh, the son of their dad’s boss. He’s gorgeous so Tessa is keen and Cat knows she doesn’t have a chance . . . But Josh seems strangely uninterested in Tess. Cat thinks there must be more to the situation . . . She and Josh become friends and eventually she thinks she’s got to the bottom of the mystery . . . maybe Josh just isn’t into girls at all . . . Now she has a new best gay friend, Cat’s life is much happier, and she and Josh get on wonderfully. If only things could stay that simple . . .”
