Isy has to move! Fortunately, she has her creativity to help her get by. Her new classmate Fee and sweet Moritz think her ideas are super cool. If only there wasn’t also Sissi, who makes Isy’s life miserable. Moritz’s interest in Isy doesn’t suit Sissi at all. She has a crush on Moritz herself, and gets so jealous that she determines to do anything it takes to win him over. When Sissi’s expensive fountain pen disappears, she spreads a rumor around the entire class that Isy took it, and that she left her previous school because she had stolen things there, too. At first Isy is completely disappointed and discouraged, but in the end, with the help of her new friends Fee and Moritz, Isy is able to uncover the lies and get Sissi to tell the truth.

In 2009 she finally took the plunge and now lives as a freelance children's book author.
