The Lovereading4Kids comment

One family’s headlong fall from riches to rags is entertainingly chronicled by fourteen year old Daisy Davenport. Rich, gorgeous and with a lovely boyfriend in tow, Daisy seems to have it all. But, when her father is charged with corruption, all the glossy trappings are removed and Daisy finds herself in a lot of unfamiliar situations. Who knows? Once she’s made the adjustments, she may be happier. She’ll certainly be wiser and her observations make good food for thought about some pretty terrible assumptions.

About the Author

Helen Bailey

Helen Bailey, (1964 - 2016) was best known for her teen fiction about a girl called Electra Brown, a cheerful, mouthy 14-year old schoolgirl obsessed with make-up, snogging, spots and whether she should dye her hair.

Helen was born and brought up in Northumberland. Barely into her teens, she invested her pocket money in buying a copy of The Writers’ and Artists’ Yearbook and spent the next few years sending short stories and poems to anyone she could think of. Much to her surprise, she sometimes found herself in print. After a degree in science, Helen worked in the media and ran a successful London-based character licensing agency handling internationally reknowned properties such as Snoopy, Felicity Wishes, Dilbert and Zorro.
