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.

Synopsis

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!
