The Lovereading4Kids comment
One of our Books of the Year 2014 - October 2014 Debut of the Month New-to-school thirteen-year-old Tabitha Baird is determined to be super-cool, to make some great best-friends. However, to do so she must reinvent herself and, in particular, keep her super-dull and dysfunctional family from all potential friends. Even before she has arrived at Heathside Academy she has chopped up her school skirt to make it look better. She soon changes her name, refashions her hair and develops a classroom style that brings delighted uproar from her fellow pupils. But can Tabitha keep her friends away from the truth about her drunken father, her mother’s lifestyle blog, her Gran and her beloved dog? Let alone her annoying younger brother. Tabitha’s teen anxieties are hilariously recorded in the sure touch of actress and comedian Arabella Weir.

The Rise and Rise of Tabitha Baird by Arabella Weir
When 13-year-old Tab Baird starts at a new school, she's determined to be the coolest, most popular girl there - whatever it takes. She adjusts her school skirt so it's just the right length. She has enough attitude to make it into the in-crowd. She even gets the attention of the hottest guys. But it's not easy being uber-cool. No one must find out that her mum, brother and her have moved into her gran's house, so she tries to persuade Gran to pose as a house-keeper. And if anyone discovers her mum's blog - about her teenage daughter - it'll be the ultimate in social death.
