The Lovereading4Kids comment

Four girls bond over a school project to create a blog. The subject? Their mums. Its title? OMG – or Our Mums Grrrrr. It’s quite possible to love your mum loads but still be driven mad by her as this demonstrates. Each girl is horribly embarrassed by her mum – too clingy, too pushy, too loud – grumbling online helps them let off steam and more importantly enables them to talk about the issues with their mums. This contemporary story is warm and rewarding, as good on the girls’ relationships with each other as it is on their feelings for their mums. Nicely designed it’s a great addition to the Barrington Stoke Conkers series, easy-to-read, packing a great story in a short extent. ~ Andrea Reece


The OMG Blog by Karen Mccombie

Four 'good' girls meet in detention and are encouraged to take part in a school blogging competition together. Ideas are few and far between but then they realise they have one BIG thing in common and the project is born - the '(O)ur (M) ums - (G)rrr' Blog. As they pour out frustrations and niggles online, the blog gets more and more popular. But will the mums find them out? Bang-on-trend story from a hugely popular and successful author.


Realistic and utterly believable, this book is good fun with a big heart -- THE SUN
