The Lovereading4Kids comment
The sensational, laugh-out-loud new stand-alone novel from Joanna Nadin, author of the bestselling Rachel Riley novels. Perfect for 10+ readers it's written in diary form and it's the story of Buttercup who has to cope with an entirely dysfunctional family and a best friend who's more than a bit irrational.
You can also read the new blog that Joanna has set up with 30 other authors who write fiction for girls aged 10-14 - click here to visit girlsheartbooks.com .

Buttercup Mash by Joanna Nadin
OMG. I think I just joined glee club and I am NOT EVEN JOKING! Buttercup has ISSUES. Her family's dysfunctional, her best friend's a drama queen and she doesn't know who her dad is! What's a girl to do? Isn't it obvious? Join the school glee club, embarrass the hell out of yourself singing rock ballads and dancing like a demented hamster on a sugar rush and write a diary for an internet shrink about your messed up life. OK, well perhaps YOU wouldn't, but Buttercup does ...The mash-ups at the glee club are nothing compared with the mash-up that's Buttercup's life!
Praise for the Rachel Riley series: 'a genuine rival to Adrian Mole ... an absolute must-read' - Publishing News
'... it takes talent to turn a dull, uneventful childhood into comic material and Nadin has pulled it off' The Bookseller
'Nadin achieves the rare trick of producing a book that will make both adults and teenagers laugh aloud.' Observer
