The hilarious follow-up to Weirdos vs Quimboids finds Lucy Perkins and Fiona Littledown (school slangers and total quimboids) have formed their own band, Perkitits. Then there’s Bumskulls - their music is brilliant and their frontman, Vince, is one dangerously sexy mancake. Amidst a churning whirlpool of love, war and music, can Blossom keep her eyes on the prize and off Vince’s sexy manface?

Weirdos vs. Bumskulls by Natasha Desborough

After performing the brilliant and unlikely feat of getting sexy rock god Josh Raven to perform at the school disco, Blossom Uxley-Michaels has decided that being a Weirdo is actually kind of awesome. Blossom prepares for a WOWZOIDS trip to Glastonbury with best friends Petrina and Walter, now a proper loved-up couple. (Blossom will sleep in between them to ensure no touching occurs in the tent.) Things get more exciting when Blossom's band, Camel Toe, enter the Battle of the Bands. All the poo in Glastonbury and even some accidental neon nork-flashing can't spoil Blossom's mood. And that's when it all goes norks up.


‘One of the funniest books I’ve read this year. Loved it!’ Sister Spooky

‘If you love Georgia Nicholson you’ll adore Blossom and this wonderful series of books.’ The Overflowing Library

‘Just as hilariously rude as the brilliant first book!’ YA Yeah Yeah

‘This second instalment is more hilarious, more shocking and more near the knuckle than the last book, making it a laugh-a-minute read from start to finish.’ Wondrous Reads

‘This book is as good as all the others I haven’t read.’ Karl Pilkington
