A classically heartwarming Catherine Bateson story, reissued with a stunning new cover For Magenta McPhee, life is good. It would be almost perfect if she could sort out her dad, who quite possibly needs saving - from himself.Desperate times call for desperate measures, even if those measures involve identity fraud on a dating site, and replying, as your father, to emails he doesn't even know he's been getting.But when pretending to be someone else is taking you away from your life's purpose - writing the next great fantasy novel - things might have gone too far.In MAGENTA MCPHEE, Catherine Bateson has once again created a cast of delightfully real characters who will stay in the reader's memory long after the last page is turned.
