Danielle is always disorganised, but all the kids love her. She is funny, kind - and a complete pushover, but finds it tough being a single mum, especially since her ex is so resolutely useless. Best mate Sam does what she can for her, paying her cash in hand to take her son to school, but she's busy with her own life. So when Sonia, a new mum at the kids' school befriends her, Danielle is grateful for the support. Sonia is the best friend anyone could wish for: loyal, attentive and incredibly generous. Danielle only has to look at a possession of Sonia's and it is in her front room by the following day. Eventually the attention begins to be a bit too much, but Sonia is not about to let Danielle back off - and Danielle does not have the nerve to stand up to her. So when Sonia starts to get scarily intense, Danielle is driven to ever more extreme - and comical - lengths to avoid her.
