A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.

Lovereading4kids comment:

Billy Grimshaw thinks the world of his dad. He hasn’t seen him for ages, but Billy knows he’ll be home as soon as he can get away from his important spying business in London. In the meantime, Billy is grappling with the disastrous news that his mum is going to marry Dave. As he makes secret plans to stop the wedding, Billy’s life gets more and more complicated, not helped by the classroom bully or even his friend, Big Lauren …

A message from Joanna Nadin:

So, you’re about to meet Billy Grimshaw – Zach Black obsessive, lover of jaffa cakes, and nemesis of his mum’s boyfriend Dave.

But, I bet if you thought about it, there’s some stuff about you that’s different too. And it doesn’t make you an oddball. It just makes makes you you. And it makes Billy a bit of a hero, in the end.

So I hope the book will make you laugh, and maybe cry, and most of all, remember that we’re all weird, and brilliant. Just like Billy Grimshaw.
