The Manifesto on How to be Interesting by Holly Bourne
Bree is by no means popular. Most of the time, she hates her life, her school, her never-there parents. So she writes. But when Bree is told she needs to stop shutting the world out and start living a life worth writing about, The Manifesto on How to be Interesting is born. Bree starts a blog to track her progress and the experiment begins…
“I’d recommend the book to anyone and everyone.” – Beth Reekles, bestselling YA author of The Kissing Booth
“Full of wisdom, heartache, and honesty, this tops John Green in my book.” – Never Judge a Book by Its Cover blog
“A hand reached out from this book and touched mine and I will never forget it.” – CJ Skuse, YA author
“Hopeful and funny, with a wonderful main character, this will be big!” – Waterstones Trafford, Teen
“5 stars.” – YA Birmingham Waterstones
“Reading The Manifesto on How to be Interesting has just made my day 300% better and filled me with a strange mix of hope and determination.” - @_rabbitheart_
“The Manifesto on How To Be Interesting is a book that is scarily appropriate to our generation.” – @sarah_gamble7
