Synopsis

Gaby's Angel by Janet Hoggarth

I love Emily to bits but she can be annoying sometimes. When she signed me up for the school play I could have killed her. If she wasn't already dead that is ...Gaby knows Emily is gone and that she will never see her again. Then Emily appears one day as Gaby's very own Guardian Angel and life is (almost) back to normal! With her best friend by her side Gaby's life is a whirl of fab sleepovers, makeovers, and parties with mates. Gaby can't imagine ever saying goodbye to her Guardian Angel but with Emily's help she begins to realise she can.

Janet Hoggarth

Janet Hoggarth has worked as a book-seller, a children’s book editor, and a DJ with her best friend (under the name ‘Britney and Whitney’). She spent her childhood making comics and filling notebooks with stories. In fact, her old boss at Bloomsbury thought she had such a talent for writing, he asked her to write a joke book, which she did with her brother.

Janet lives in London and draws constant inspiration from her three brilliant children. Gaby’s Angel is her first book for Oxford University Press.
