Shortlisted for the Glen Dimplex 'New Writers' Award.

Please don’t read too much into the pink and glittery cover! This book is well written, sharply funny somewhere between Carrie Fisher and Sophie Kinsella. I really enjoyed it and can ‘so’ see why it has been short listed for the Glen Dimplex New Writer children’s book award. The books central character Carrie has lots of teenage angst and problems but with the support of her good friends you know it will work out OK in the end. Readers of Louise Rennison will also devour this bright new find.

Synopsis

Style Sisters by Liz Elwes

Carrie has finished grieving for Danny who left a week ago to live in Birmingham and now she must make amends to her neglected friends. From now on she is going to put her friends first and do as many good deeds as she can. With Kate and Chloe, Carrie starts by forming a 'style' group. But things never quite work out as planned...

About the Author

Liz Elwes
Liz Elwes lives in north London with her husband and four children and two long-suffering goldfish. She has lived in 26 houses all together because when she was young her father was in the army and her family moved all the time. She had been to 10 schools by the time she was 13 years old, so she’s had plenty of practice at being the new girl. This meant a lot of letter writing. She then went to a convent boarding school in Cambridge which was a relief after all that moving around, though she’s not sure if the nuns were as happy as she was.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
